Join a Virtual Screening of the Brave Blue World Documentary and Panel Discussion


We are getting excited about CWEA’s upcoming AC20 Virtual Conference & Expo and we’re getting things started with an exciting virtual movie screening and panel discussion.

A new documentary film titled Brave Blue World examines how new technologies and innovations can create a sustainable water future. The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is a production partner for Brave Blue World and is using the film to raise public awareness about the solutions to water challenges.

It is important to convey a sense of hope and spirit of optimism for water. By showing a path to a sustainable water future Brave Blue World can help us to influence leaders, increase resources, change policies, and improve stewardship of water.

Celebrating Imagine H2O’s Water Innovation Week 2020

Our Annual Celebration of Innovation & Entrepreneurship is October 12-16.

This fall, our global network will convene virtually for Water Innovation Week 2020. In March, our theme for the conference was The Next Decade. But given that 2020 has been, well, 2020, we thought it wise to shorten our focus. So we are now: Water Innovation Week 2020: The Next Year. One year at a time, people.

Join our diverse mix of industry leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, customers, advisors, and more, as they explore what is possible in the water sector this year.

And maybe just a little into the future…
