IDEO’s water team created three scenes envisioning a positive future with water. Each scene explores one of three opportunity areas the team identified to successfully manage this natural resource: 1) Decisions we'll make, 2) Systems that will support our lifestyle, and 3) Tools we'll use in our daily lives.
This 2nd scene depicts a water monitoring system and how it enables a family to manage household water while they sleep. People will not be water managers, nor will they want to be. The systems we create may step in when we are not and do not want to be engaged.
