Here are the UN Water Forum videos: Part 1 and Part 2. Here is the schedule. It appears that the Part 1 video missed Panel 1 (yours truly is omitted). There is a two-hour shot of flags after about one hour, then the video picks up with Katherine Bliss in Panel 2.
I guess they thought the flags were more interesting. Hey, it's the UN.
At least I got my picture taken with Jane Seymour.
At the Forum I learned of an incredible school in India - Barefoot College - that trains villagers to be social entrepreneurs. As one woman engineer, Mahdu Rangi, explained to me, Barefoot College likes to train the 'disenfranchised' (especially older women) to help their villages. They want to train people who will return to their villages to improve them and not take their skills to the cities to seek their fortunes, so they often avoid young men and women. They are especially good at training grandmothers to be solar engineers, who then electrify their villages.
The college also does water, too.
Heading home today. Good meeting. We'll have to see what ultimately comes out of it.
