Water is one of the most critical issues of our time. Whether it’s flood risk on the Gulf Coast or megadrought in the Western United States, both situations are becoming increasingly dire in light of rapid climate change. Now more than ever effective communication is needed, but, how should we talk about our current water challenges to provide clarity and inspire the action needed to impact positive change?

Join Ten Across founder Duke Reiter as he talks to esteemed hydrologist and water communicator Jay Famiglietti about the our current water crisis, what needs to be done, and why effective and compelling communication is so essential to building a more resilient future.
