Can you imagine a day without water?

The Linda Hall Library — one of the world’s largest research libraries dedicated to science, engineering and technology — will bring together national and international water experts to explore how “imagining a day without water” can become a thing of the past during a special virtual conference: Water: Access, Supply and Sustainability on Oct 27, 28 & 29.

The conference will bring citizens together with scientists, engineers, environmentalists, city leaders and water experts including:


“We see rivers running dry, wetlands disappearing, groundwater being depleted and more intense draughts, storms, floods — and wildfires,” said Sandra Postel, the conference keynote speaker and author of Replenish: The Virtuous Cycle of Water and Prosperity.

How can we live healthy, productive lives while also sustaining the ecosystems that support our economy — and the rest of life on the planet? That’s the challenge. And we can be part of the solution. But we don’t have time to waste.”
