Who’s ready for mbg revitalize?
We’re gearing up for our biggest weekend in wellness, featuring 250 of the most renowned doctors, healers, entrepreneurs, and activists of today.
Zenner, a professor at Fordham and author of Just Water: Theology, Ethics, and the Global Water Crisis, and Agustinez, a tribal policy adviser for the California Department of Water Resources who has been named one of the nine experts to watch on California water policy, will unpack how water crises start and share some of the most important ones of today.
"People following the news have the opportunity to see that the availability of fresh water is not a given and is deeply wedded to the institutions society has built up," Zenner told mbg earlier this year for a story on California’s Central Valley, where 500,000 to 1 million people lack access to clean water.
As the global population continues to soar and climate change influences the world’s weather patterns, water access problems will likely worsen.
Agustinez has seen firsthand how water politics, weather patterns, and infrastructure converge to leave Native American communities in California without water.
This year on mbg, we have profiled an activist who is running 100 marathons in 100 days to shine a light on water access, learned from an all-female team sailing around the world to clean up our water, and seen how a new solar panel design can extract clean water out of thin air.
