How the City of Big Shoulders is Addressing the Global Water Crisis

September 30, 2020 @ 14:00 - 15:00 CDT

How everyday Chicagoans are taking local action to make far reaching global impact!

Chicago, a thriving metropolis, is characterized by much of what defines a leading global city. A hub for connectivity, a cultural capital, home to world-class universities and hospitals, a prospering immigrant population, visionary leaders – it plays an integral role in propelling the global economy. We’re also a leader in innovation, with one of the largest water filtration and treatment plants in the world.

Blessed with abundant water on the banks of Lake Michigan – Chicago also has a history of giving back locally and globally. With 2.1 billion people in the world lacking access to safe water, Chicago-based nonprofits like Surge for Water, their local corporate partners and team members are helping solve the global water crisis – right here – in your backyard.

Join us for at Chicago Water Week for an in-depth conversation that highlights Surge’s sustainable global work and how everyday Chicagoans are taking local action to make far reaching global impact!

You’ll hear from Surge for Water’s Founder – Shilpa Alva and their local Corporate Partner, Jordan Robinson of SBB Research Group.

This event is offered as part of Chicago’s first-ever Water Week. See here for the rest of the week’s events.
