World Water Day

In celebration of the 29th World Water Day, I had the pleasure of speaking and connecting at Safe Water Network’s “Water and Climate Change: Risk and Resilience” virtual youth event. Safe Water Network was co-founded by late actor, Paul Newman, and former chairman of Goldman Sachs, John Whitehead, in light of 25% of the world lacking access to affordable safe water. The webinar brought together over 500 young leaders, movers and shakers from over 30 countries, highlighting their solutions-oriented work to help tackle challenges faced in the water and climate change nexus. Other speakers included speakers Indra Nooyi (Former Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo), Parameswaran Iyer (Global Lead, Strategic Initiatives at The World Bank’s Water Practice) and Jainey Bavishi (Director, NYC Mayor’s Office of Resiliency).
