Podcast: A special edition episode from Stockholm’s World Water Week

September 4, 2015

I’m usually the one asking the questions on our freshwater Talk podcasts. But recently, roles were reversed.

I was interviewed in Stockholm at World Water Week, an annual international meeting for all actors engaged in water and development issues. Organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), the week brings together 2,500 experts, practitioners, decision makers and business innovators from around the globe to exchange ideas, foster new thinking, and develop solutions.

Journalist Eric Paglia and I sat down to talk about “Quantified Conservation,” the idea of moving beyond a procedure-based past to an outcome-based future and ensuring every action translates to a positive outcome for the environment. It’s about leveraging the best practices used by businesses and social sector organizations to enable a foundation for the next era of environmentalism and the economy.

This approach is what The Freshwater Trust is using to fix rivers right now, and it’s the basis for my new book “Quantified,” officially being released to the public next week.

Listen in for more on why quantified conservation is a game-changer for saving our freshwater resources. And for the full story, be on the lookout for the book September 18.
