We are witnessing the end of the golden age of water. Over the next 35 years, the world’s demand for water will rise by 55 percent, and it’s no wonder that water technology and management figure to shape the 21st century much like oil conflicts influenced the 20th century. So how can we reshape a better future for water? In his talk, Dr. Seth Darling will discuss how we got to this point, what lies ahead, and what can be done now to respond and adapt.

Seth is an award winning scientist at Argonne National Laboratory and a Fellow at UChicago’s Institute for Molecular Engineering. He has presented his ideas on TEDx, Chicago Tonight, and numerous radio outlets and written the book, How to Change Minds About Our Changing Climate.
