Clear Water, Clear Conscience?

Modern-day science is able to provide us with more information on water quality than ever before. Join us for a panel discussion about the health benefits of sharing water quality information — whether that be with wild swimmers in the UK or rural populations in Asia and Africa.
Having access to information can help people make choices about water use, such as when they need to treat drinking water, or whether or not to swim in a particular stretch of river. Information can also be used to campaign for better policies to help promote water safety and security. But collecting and sharing this data creates challenges as well as opportunities.

In this panel discussion, we’ll be thinking about how water quality information can reduce health risks and campaign for policies and investments to address pollution.
