WILL SARNI LIVE!
TALKING ALL THINGS WATER
The co-hosts of our bi-weekly videocast, Will Sarni & Tom Freyberg (Founder of the Atlantean,) have unscripted conversations with guest experts who reject the status quo and have a bias for ACTION IN THE WORLD OF WATER. Starting Season 4 this month...
"Will Sarni is a well-known water guru. A player tackling the business world's complex relationship with water." Quartz
”I can’t accept that a large part of humanity doesn’t have access to safe drinking water due to scarcity or poor quality. This is a human right that we no longer can ignore. Physical and economic water scarcity along with poor quality
water can be solved through innovation in partnerships, technology and public policy. Our runway to address these issues is short and the time is now to move beyond outdated thinking and frameworks to address these issues.”
