The answer is in our hands

We’re organising this symposium because we believe that whether we succeed or fail is in our hands, and that success relies on all of us.

Success relies on us driving the provision of the most fundamental public services to everyone: power, communications, healthcare, education, and, of course, water and sanitation. And it relies on us doing this in a way that is resilient and sustainable in the face of the climate crisis. It requires us to think differently, act differently, work differently; to connect systems and to drive change.
