TED-TALK At TEDXTwenteU

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.

Speaking in a very engaging style with a solid base of knowing the subject inside out. Rick is a true ambassador of creating awareness about our waterfootprint in a way we all can change what we do. Rick is a speaker who can make the subject clear, without making you ‘wrong’ and him just ‘right’. Rick is a living example of bridging different worlds, and opening up our minds by real stories.

Leuk artikeltje in het @nrc over onze #watervoetafdruk. Staar je niet blind op alleen NL water. We zijn erg afhankelijk van buitenlands (virtueel) water, wat lokaal grote impact kan hebben.

#Wind & #solar lowest WF while bio highest

Water stressed areas like Spain must take it seriously!
