Ripple Competition invites innovative young minds to find a sustainable solution addressing the problem of the global water crisis. Water and its importance are well known, still, we have been disconnected from it in urban realms. Water is omnipresent and yet visually hidden while it flows through a dense network below the surface. Lack of interaction with water in such circumstances has to lead us to have no perception at all. The global water crisis is the lack of fresh water resources to meet water demand and is the largest global risks in terms of potential impact over the next decade. An immediate impact of Global water crisis was the onset of water conflicts among nations, states, communities. Are wars the kind of solution we are looking at? Further, will they resolve the impending crisis of water around the corner?
Is this due to an anomaly in our perspective or unawareness?
Water is a crucial element to our existence, yet this disengagement is ironic. How can we establish the role of water as a vital element in supporting human existence?
