For a species that prides itself on scientific
discovery, we know startlingly little about
the resource that is most crucial to our
survival: water. 11

academics, businesspeople and
policymakers who study water for a living.
“To make any progress, we experts must first admit our
own ignorance,” says John Cronin, Director and CEO of The
Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries. “We don’t know

TFC - Women 2020 - How women’s actions and expectations are changing the future

how women act as catalysts for fundamental
changes, which are shaping not just their own
world, but everybody’s world.
We show that understanding women is
