Pono Hanson, Chair of the Student Design Competition, talks about 2018 being a record-breaking year for the competition, with 23 teams representing 22 schools, 20 WEF Member Associations, and 3 different countries.
"WEF is like that magical universe where water, sustainability, and environment meet with innovation, science, and technology, together catalyzed by the love, passion, and responsibility that its’ members feel for this industry. In this milieu, my sense of belonging for what I do every day has found its reason to be, and today as a water professional, it motivates me to give the best of myself to this field."
More than 175 volunteers from across the country participated in the 11th Annual WEF Community Service Project to build a bioswale and green infrastructure graphic in the historic Treme neighborhood of New Orleans.
"We all have a very intimate relationship with water, which is a bit scary if you think about it because we have a fundamental dependence on it for our survival. Look around you, wherever you are; nothing you see would exist without water. Let that sink in."
Kristi Steiner touches on how YP's across the industry are learning to sustainably manage our most precious resource.
