Complex and changing, water is an interweaving force in human society. From energy and infrastructure to agriculture and public health, almost all industries and sectors interact with water in some capacity. Yet, as with any natural element, water poses risks and challenges that become more severe with extreme weather changes, rising populations and increasing urbanization, just to name a few.
The goal of the Sustainability Summit 2018 is to take the same multidimensional approach, as in the previous summits, in order to identify and discuss the more pressing issues, trends, synergies and challenges. The discussions will then enable us to ideate achievable and lasting solutions for one of the world’s more critical sustainability concerns: WATER.
Policymakers, industry movers, business leaders, NGO professionals and academia will be brought together in a dynamic moderated forum to talk about the more prevalent issues involving water as it relates to: Scarcity and Wastage, Energy, Agriculture, Infrastructure, and Public Health.
The Sustainability Summit 2018 is in partnership with AGREA, an innovative and inclusive social enterprise that is founded on fair trade and sustainable agriculture, and Forest Foundation Philippines, an institution which supports organizations that implement forest protection projects through its grant programs, and the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) - Environmental Management Bureau (EMB).
The conference will be held on August 1, 2018 at The Tent of Enderun Colleges in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
