The talk will take place on 1 March, 7:30pm at the Royal Geographical Society, and will be followed by an audience Q&A led by BBC HARDTalk presenter and Just a Drop Patron Stephen Sackur.

About Just a Drop
Just a Drop has reached over 1.3 million people since its beginnings in 1998, and has worked in over 30 countries worldwide. The charity aims to address the shocking statistics that 884 million people globally do not have access to clean water; and that a child dies every 2 minutes from a water-related disease – which means more children under the age of five years old die from this than from malaria, measles and HIV/AIDS combined.
