Following this, representatives from water industry charity Just a Drop will showcase the work they do at a grassroots level to support communities around the world with access to sustainable safe water solutions, sanitation facilities and knowledge of safe hygiene practices.

This will be followed by a third and final presentation, more details of which to come shortly.

This event will be held online and will include a short Q+A session following each presentation.
