The challenge of water R+D+i

The alteration of nature caused by our activities places us before a challenge based on constant knowledge: to discover, predict and evaluate the consequences of what we are doing with natural resources and the environment we live in forces us to be effective in Research, Development and Innovation. The water security of the planet depends on the experience of the most developed countries reaching everyone.

Pristine water, a treasure in the heights of Colombia

The short film by the Colombian Nicolás Durán, winner in the micro-documentary category of the We Art Water Film Festival 4, is a beautiful tribute to pure water, an immense gift of nature that is increasingly rare to find unless we climb to the top of the mountains. In Colombia and all around the world, it is urgent that we act as the protagonist of the short film, who changed his attitude to be coherent with his thinking.

The circles must be closed for everyone

The circular economy in the treatment of water does not only imply an improvement in water security and in the safeguard of the environment, it is also an almost unexplored opportunity for economic growth. It forces a change of paradigm that is not easy in the productive model of rich countries, but it presents important asymmetries with those who still struggle for access to water and basic sanitation. The balance of the planet depends on the reuse of water for the benefit of all.

Titicaca, the pain of Viracocha

Titicaca, the mythical lake of ancient Andean cultures, is declining due to urban and mining pollution. The wastewater treatment plans put in place by the Peruvian government are essential to give a decent life expectancy to more than one million people living on the shores of the lake. The recovery of traditional culture and education is also essential. The lake from which Viracocha emerged to give life to the Andes must be saved.

Is a regenerative city possible?

Can Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, New Delhi... become cities that regenerate as many resources as they consume? This is a very high demand, a utopia according to many, but from the water perspective we need to start thinking about making it possible or at least, about getting close to it. We need to be close to the concept of reuse, and in many cases time is of the essence.

Water will save our cities

The crust of asphalt, metal and concrete of cities grows more rapidly than we thought, and it accumulates and soils increasingly more water. The New Urban Agenda establishes a road map for sustainability, but it is necessary to take a further step towards the regeneration of large cities. Water and sanitation are the goal and the solution at the same time.
