This time it was three eighteen year olds. Congratulation to Luigi Marshall Cham, Jun Yong Nicholas Lim and Tian Ting Carrie-Anne Ng who picked up the 2012 Stockholm Junior Water Prize at an award ceremony at the World Water Week in Stockholm. Hope this serves as an inspiration to all readers here.
Also on the night, PepsiCo picked up the Stockholm Industry Water Award for its recent water efficieny award. I know PepsiCo have been working hard in this area, and I met Sanjeev Chadha at SIWW in 2010 at our roundtable on Water Reuse; he was particularly eloquent during that session. This is a good read about PepsiCo ambitions for Africa which Sanjeev talked about after receiving the award (highlighting the south-south alliance that is forming in the “new Asia”).
Anyway, congratulations to the three youthful Singaporeans who follow in the footsteps of PUB in 2007.
Here’s a great little debate hosted by the Guardian on September , inspired by this year’s Stockholm World Water Week. Will take place at 9 p.m. Singapore time on September 6th. The relationship between water and food (and energy) is a topic air frequently through these pages. Join in, listen and be heard!
