WET Networks – Circular Water Economy

Water is a precious and finite resource, intrinsically linked with other systems such as governance, the natural system and the urban system. Water is the ultimate circular resource due to its ability to be processed relatively cheaply and used productively again and again.

Circular Economy principles have undergone major developments and are being applied in many sectors across the globe ranging from fashion to finance. The water sector however, has been predominantly focused on the theoretical aspects and we see a real need for its translation to practical applications.

In its fifteenth year, Wet Networks showcased new ideas and technology to help transform the way we manage water. Keynote presenter, Dr Tom Arnot of Bath University, provided an introduction to the event which is available to view at the link below:
