Attend the 2024 Next Generation Water Summit

With the theme “Solutions for a Changing World,” NGWS will be held June 20-21.

The 7th edition of the Next Generation Water Summit (NGWS) will take place June 20–21 in Santa Fe, N.M. The annual event will once again be offered in a hybrid format, with both in-person and virtual attendance options.

The 2024 theme is “Solutions for a Changing World,” and registration is open now. Early bird pricing is $199 for in-person and $79 for virtual attendance.


“The NGWS offers introductory and well as advanced educational sessions and continuing education credits,” says Christine Chavez, Water Conservation Manager for the City of Santa Fe. “This is critical in these times when management of changing water resources has an enormous impact on the livability of our cities and towns.”

For the first time in its history, the NGWS will have a new venue. The New Mexico state capitol building, known as “The Roundhouse,” will host the educational sessions on both Thursday and Friday. The NGWS focuses on both regional and national water challenges, and is historically known for holding two to three concurrent session tracks after each day’s opening keynote.

Confirmed sessions include:

  • “Panel: Educating the Next Generation”
  • “Black Water to Potable: The Next Big Push”
  • “Water Savings with the Water Demand Calculator”
  • “Why WERS? Why Now?”
  • “Drastic Water Reduction Actions Around the West”
  • “Potable Rainwater–The Real Science”

Hosts of the Next Generation Water Summit are the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce; Green Builder Coalition; City of Santa Fe; KUELwater and the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association. The national media partner is Green Builder Media.

All registrants (in-person or virtual) will be able to attend live and on-demand sessions, and network with fellow attendees from around the world. Click here to register .
