Sustainability and climate protection | trends of technology | Worth knowing | How will our water supply develop in the future? What are the driving trends of these developments? And which technologies could play a vital role in this? To answer these questions, our foresight experts look into an alternative future. This time we present our third possible scenario – a fictional future in which water privatization makes premium drinking water the privilege of high-income earners.
