Description

A leading global water professional, Dr. Vairavamoorthy shares how his cultural and spiritual connection with water was developed and how that led to principles of good water stewardship. He shares a story of water and a vision for our future with water that is inspiring and immensely relevant to the future of our planet and our communities. As the founding Dean of the Patel College of Global Sustainability, Dr. Kalanithy Vairavamoorthy is an internationally-recognized expert on urban water systems and sustainable urban resource management. Dr. Vairavamoorthy is Co-Chair of the International Water Association's 'Cities of the Future' program and served as Director of SWITCH, a €25M EU research project for Sustainable Water Management for the City of the Future. Recently he was named a "Water Hero" by Impeller Magazine. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
