Rick has a passion for water. Young and energetic, Rick aims to foster and facilitate science-based, practical and inclusive water stewardship whenever and wherever he can. Always with a big smile. Water is so precious – we cannot go without it for more than a couple days – yet the way we use and misuse it is gravely underexposed. In his TED talk, Rick will try to share his passion for water, his quest for enlightenment, and inspire you to become good water stewards yourselves. Rick is Executive Director at the Water Footprint Network, an international non-profit partner and donor organization which tries to find ways of sustainable, fair and efficient use of the world’s limited fresh water.
