Global Washington Event: The Ripple Effect

FSG Managing Director Patty Russell moderates the panel The Ripple Effect: Clean Water Programs that Inspire Long-Term Behavior Change.

The Seattle region is known for innovation and we are leaders in implementing technology to address pressing problems in developing countries such as water and sanitation. But technology alone will not solve the situation of 783 million people who lack access to clean water. Introducing new and appropriate solutions that inspire behavior change to improve health and sanitation will be required to achieve the global goal of universal access to improved drinking water by 2030. Join us for a discussion with nonprofit and for-profit members of Global Washington to hear about success and failures in creating sustained clean water systems in developing countries.
