Jamboree 2010: Where the Boys (and WEF Volunteers) Are

Posted March 29, 2010

This August will mark an important anniversary for WEF public education programs and thousands of men and boys around the world, including me.  The big event is the National Scout Jamboree held every four years, and the next one takes place July 26 through August 4, 2010, at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia.  That’s where WEF will be doing some really cool things to show kids just how wastewater is treated and what that means for a cleaner global water environment.

Catching the Sustainability Buzz in Boston

Posted March 16, 2010

Once in a while I attend a conference where absolutely everything seems to click and the confluence of place, people, and ideas creates a feeling that something truly special is occurring.  There’s a buzz in the air and the participants know it.  Conversations everywhere extend for hours after Q&As have ended and the last sessions have wrapped up.

Tomorrow’s Cities Depend on Today’s Innovative Thinking

Posted March 2, 2010

Tomorrow’s cities will be conceived, designed, developed, managed and governed by those who recognize that interdisciplinary approaches best address the complex challenges of the 21st century. Although population growth, social inequity, economic turmoil, climate change, water shortages and environmental degradation place unprecedented stress on our infrastructure and ecosystems, innovation in management, technological advances and volunteerism offer promise for the future.
