Why Water is A Big Deal?
The current ‘Paradigm of Scarcity’, in which water is treated as a stock to be used once and then discarded, needs to make way for a New Paradigm of Abundance that unlocks the simple fact that water is not a stock, but rather a flux that moves in time and space and is an infinitely renewable resource. Capital and technology need to be attracted into the water sector. This is one of the aims of The Water Chamber, part of the Public Private Growth Initiative (PPGI. Water of different quality and price would be used for different purposes at different times and places. The recovery of water from waste is an important part of this scheme, as is the desalination of sea and mine water where appropriate.Entrance: Members free, Non-members R30, Students/learners free, includes snacks and refreshments.
