YOUR ARE INVITED to a special networking and dinner program at the Rainier Club in Seattle on the looming global water crisis. We may be able to survive without oil, but not without water. Water is an essential ingredient for life on this planet—yet in places it is too abundant or too scarce. More than a billion individuals—one in seven people on the planet—lack access to safe drinking water and risk life-threatening illnesses. Water resources in Washington state are impacted by climate change, drought, diminished salmon runs, flooding, stormwater runoff and lead contamination. The opportunity to innovate to meet these challenges is here. Cities like Milwaukee have made clean water technologies a centerpiece of their global marketing, entrepreneurship and job creation strategies. Come hear from key business, government and non-profit leaders as they discuss strategies for Washington state unleashing innovation and moving towards a future of CLEAN, SUSTAINABLE AND SAFE WATER. Speakers and panelists include:
Ray Hoffman, Director of Seattle Public Utilities
Rob Duff, Senior Policy Advisor to Governor Inslee on natural resource and environmental issues
Ryan Vogel, Executive Director of Pure Blue Clean Water Innovation Initiative and founder of Pure Blue Tech, Inc.
Egils Milbergs, CEO of the Center for Accelerating Innovation, Pure Blue Water Alliance Chair and former Executive Director of the Washington Economic Development Commission, will be moderator of the event.
