Why This Debate and Why Now?
No one can survive more than three days without water, but a quarter of the world is running out of it. It’s a scarcity crisis on the rise, compounded by climate change. How do we get water into everyone’s hands? Who is best equipped to solve the challenge? Watch the full debate and read our recap.
Three speakers, three perspectives. Each invited speaker presents a view and opinion on a possible solution to a world challenge.
The role of connector is to combine elements of each opinion to create a new response that deconstructs arguments and examines their consequences.
