The Water Network powered by TallyFox received an appreciation certificate from University of Omar Al-Mukhtar, Libya for sponsoring an online platform for their conference. If wish to know more about the online platform for the events vist here http://bit.ly/10eAr1u
The Technical University of Munich is hosting two unique events on the 28th and 29th of June 2013 in Garching near Munich: The TUM Desal Competition and the TUM Desal Conference.
At the TUM Desal Competition, creative students participate with their own energy-self-sufficient desalination plants and compete in seven disciplines. This year, nine student teams were elected to take part. Our aim is to raise awareness for the growing scarcity of drinking water. You can find more information and images of our previous event here: http://www.mehrwasser.de/wordpress-neu/?page_id=8&lang=en
Our symposium focuses on desalination technologies with low impact on the environment. We have a variety of speakers from industry and research institutes. Should you be interested in participating as visitor or as speaker, please contact me. Further information can be found here: http://www.mehrwasser.de/wordpress-neu/?page_id=181&lang=en
The events are free of charge.
We are seeking end users who might be interested in trialling a new pollution monitoring and modelling platform which we will be developing in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA) over the next 12 months. Red Skies are a preferred supplier to ESA.
We currently provide a range of technologies and platforms to support water utilities and environmental agencies including our SODA (Secure yet Open Data Architecture) platform which collects & pulls together big data, generating sensors and devices within utilities.
Red Skies & ESA is interested in making available space assets and services to support water utilities and environmental agencies and we are discussing a new platform which runs on top of the SODA platform to provide pollution monitoring and modelling features including the following.
Securely pull data from potentially millions of pollution sensors over an area, using wireless and satellite communications to access remote locations.
•Securely pull in third party data feeds such as weather data.
•Securely store all collected data in a cloud or private cloud environment.
•Enable pollution data to be visualised over a Bing or Google map as well as play back time series data such as readings over the last month to see how pollution has moved.
•Using all historic data and any available data such as weather data, predict how pollution will move in the future to enable planning for future events.
•Provide an extensible architecture to allow additional services to be developed by us and any third parties such as new reporting and modelling services.
While ESA will be providing all space assets, we will also be talking to other national space agencies to gather further national involvement.
We will be developing the platform but we are seeking potential end users who would be willing to run trials of the platform once its developed which will enable us to measure the effectiveness of the platform, gather feedback on how to improve the platform and provide the most useful overall solution to organisations around the world. We will be working with Oxford University on the sensors themselves to ensure we provide the most complete solution including sampling for the widest and most appropriate range of water based pollutants.
By running a trial you will be able to measure the effectiveness of the solution for your organisation, will be able to feedback and help shape the platform and will be able to access this high tech solution very early and start to benefit from its capabilities ahead of the wider world.
We also have support from the UK’s Technology Strategy Board (TSB) to develop the best sensor capability.

Anyone wanting the plans, costs and pictures showing how the groups we are supporting in Uganda install wells is more than welcome.
you can look at photos - just let the slide show load.
We deal with many technologies and water experts and are currently looking to help a group in India manufacture a unique well pump.
One of the exciting projects involves producing very large amounts of food while minimizing the amount of water needed - all organic and no importing of fertilizer.

Rotary and the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education have teamed up to tackle the world’s water and sanitation crisis by increasing the number of trained professionals to devise, plan, and implement solutions in developing and emerging countries. Through this partnership, The Rotary Foundation will provide grants to Rotary clubs and districts to select and sponsor 8 students each year.
Adelaide's desalination plant has been officially opened 18 months after it started producing drinking water and almost six years after it was proposed.

It is indeed a pleasure to announce you all that a peer- reviewed online International Journal of Environment (IJE) ISSN 2091-2854 published by Progressive Sustainable Developers Nepal (PSD-Nepal) is seeking submissions (research papers, review articles and short communications) on the field of environment for the inaugural issue. We would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and we look forward to your contribution to the Journal.
We would also appreciate it, if you kindly forward this message to all your research staff and scholars within your institute/university/industry.
Thank you for your time and cooperation.
