This presentation investigates the opportunity that the water presents to solve the most urgent global problems. These include fundamental challenges such as climate change, urbanization, population growth and land scarcity. We call this shift of humanity to the oceans ‘the Blue Revolution’. It includes using the water in a sustainable way to make cities, produce food and energy, and create new ecosystems.
