Save water for future generations
Because we can’t live without water … Water is LIFE !!!
Kamstrup wants to engage end-users in daily interaction and/or thinking about their water usage in a way that makes them use/waste less water in a daily basis.
Access to clean water is a global challenge. If the problem is not managed prices for clean water will grow and the cost both in money and CO2 for producing clean water will grow as well. Climate change are resulting in long periods of drought mainly in the US, India and Africa.
Consumers are unaware of how their inadvertent water consumption behavior are destroying the future for the coming generations.

GE_08 Consumer engagement: Changing consumer behavior through nudging and gamification
Water is currently a limited resource, and potentially a global problem in societies in regions (Africa, California etc.). In 2018 the 3 year long drought crisis ended in Cape Town, but the risk of running out of water is still lurking.
KAMSTRUP is looking for solutions to engage consumer for conscious use of water.
Societies in regions (Africa, California etc.) where water currently are a limited resource, and potentially a global problem. In 2018 the 3 year long drought crisis ended in Cape Town, but the risk of running out of water is still lurking.
Utilities need to reduce water usage with consumers.
Additionally water utilities can save cost by moving consumption away from peak periods (morning/early evening) and can benefit from a change in consumer behavior.
Consumer apps to visualize consumption data has shown not to have the desired impact regarding changing behavior. Consumers show interest in the early launch of such services.
How might we engage end-users in daily interaction and/or thinking about their water usage in a way that makes them use/waste less water in a daily basis.
- GDPR limitations
- Consumer adoption strategy
- Business model design

Salvemos la Amazonia! SAVE THE AMAZON RAINFOREST!
Défendre la forêt amazonienne!
Amazonia forever Amazonia por siempre
For years, Antonio Vicente begged his neighbors to listen to his warning. The water in Pouso do Rochedo, Brazil, was going to disappear and, with it, so would the life in this piece of the rainforest. And he was right. But now, after dedicating the last 40 years to reforesting his land, the water is coming back…and it is all thanks to him.
The Great Green Wall is an African-led movement with an epic ambition to grow an 8,000 km natural wonder of the world across the entire width of Africa.
A decade in and roughly 15% underway, the initiative is already bringing life back to Africa’s degraded landscapes at an unprecedented scale, providing food security, jobs and a reason to stay for the millions who live along its path.
The Wall promises to be a compelling solution to the many urgent threats not only facing the African Continent, but the global community as a whole – notably climate change, drought, famine, conflict and migration.
Once complete, the Great Green Wall will be the largest living structure on the planet, 3 times the size of the Great Barrier Reef.

The science is clear. Climate change is real. Climate change is happening now. Climate change requires immediate and ambitious action to prevent the worst effects it can have on people and wildlife all over the world.
We know that the planet has warmed by an average of nearly 1°C in the past century. If we are to prevent the worst effects of climate change, there is global agreement that temperature rises need to be kept well below 2°C from the pre-industrial era, with an ambition to keep it below 1.5°C. Currently, however, assessments suggest that we are currently on course for temperature rises of up to as much as 4°C or higher.
