Name of the project Water'n'Vegas


1. What Problem do you want to solve ?

How can we face the water issue in Las Vegas ?


2. Why does this problem exist? As Las Vegas was built in a desert and is taking its water in the Lake Mead, it seems important to face the problem that the town will meet in a close future, which is the lack of the water as the Lake Mead is drying up. How can we face this problem ? What could we invent in order to prevent this lack?


3. What breakthrough are you commited to creating?

We would like to try to solve the problem by using two different approaches: the first idea would be to create a way to save the lake from dryness and an other idea We would like to create a huge awareness campaign in the Las Vegas city in order to change the minds and push the population to act by themselves
