YOU’RE ON STAGE

As a society, we are too busy with our own lives to see the impact of our actions on the environment. While the retreat focuses on macro water issues, this concept places focus on how individuals need to be held accountable for their own actions in order for humankind’s abusive relationship with water to improve on a large scale. Users are constantly on “stage”.

 
 

Client: Environmental Defense Fund

Every month, users will come to the Retreat Facility for three weeks to work towards solving our global water issues. The attendees are from 12 different countries, across 12 different disciplines. Disciplines vary from scientists to politicians, engineers to designers.
