This is a ticketed event, with a $99 entry fee for all the sessions. Interested parties can register on the event home page.
There will be various sessions focused on water concerns in the nation overall, and in New Mexico in particular. The organizers will also make a number of case studies available for study throughout the event.
This event will include live and recorded sessions, a virtual exhibit hall, and ample networking opportunities. It is being hosted by the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce, Green Builder® Coalition, City of Santa Fe, KUELWater, the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association, and Santa Fe County. The title sponsor is PNM, in support with AVANGRID.
“The current drought is the worst in at least 1,200 years,” said Robert Glennon, opening keynoter. “Water conservation, as well as water reuse at the household, neighborhood, community and state level, is required. This is not a time for hesitation.”
Muhammad Younas, the CEO and Founder of vFairs, added, “Water is one of the most important topics we must discuss at a global level. Using a virtual platform will make these discussions much more accessible.”
The Next Generation Water Summit 2022 will take place on the 19th and 20th of May, 2022. Interested individuals can register and buy their tickets online on the event website.
