Global Water Working Group
The Global Water Working Group of Cumulus has been founded at the Shanghai Conference in 2010.
Water is by far too complex a phenomenon to be dealt with from only an economic perspective. To address the topic solely through the sustainability perspective might repel designers who are concerned exclusively with what they consider creating beauty - which is still one of the strongest motifs to become a designer.
There is nevertheless a multitude of possible entries to that topic which can help designers get involved in order to develop
1. An attitude towards water at all
2. Start perceiving water a a cornerstone to a sustainable future
3. Draw an outline of topics, projects and products waiting for smart design-solutions.
