Hydronations summit 2016

Bridge Biotechnology were delighted to attend the Hydro Nations Summit 2016.

This event is organised by the Power of Youth in partnership with Scottish Government and Scottish Development International.

 

Power of Youth (POY) was founded in 2011 in recognition that the world needs action orientated role models for the next generation and that business provides an exceptional platform to help humanity reach its potential.

The name Power of Youth comes from the border-less, wonder-filled way young minds see the world.

 Their Mission

To live in a world where every entrepreneur is driven by a purpose greater than profit, every business a force for good and everyone has the opportunity to contribute towards the uplifting of society, so that together we can build a better world through business

They believe that the world will become a better place if businesses:

  • Show real care for the people they employ
  • Work in harmony with local communities
  • Supply uplifting and innovative products and services to the market
  • Take active measures to minimise harm done to the environment.

 Pioneers who run businesses like this are dotted all over the world – as well global ambassadors who support the mission.

The two day residential programme was held in Edinburgh to develop a platform to build, collate and scale water and waste water technologies to meet some of the most challenging global water issues.

The summit will be followed up with a second summit being held in India in early 2017
