WaterWise: Washing Futures
Based on the premise that a sustainable future will rely not only on technological innovation, but cultural and personal changes, three scenarios for how we might make our washing practices more sustainable by 2050 are currently on show at the Dublin Science Gallery. The installation has been developed by researchers from the Consensus project, who are examining four key areas of household consumption; water, transport, energy and food. The WaterWise scenarios are intended to ‘think outside the box’, and have been developed through participatory backcasting research, involving a wide range of stakeholders including Waterwise. There is an ‘Aqua Adapt’ scenario where washing behaviour changes according to natural weather fluctuations, ‘De-WaterWise’ that focuses on hi-tech waterless washing solutions, and ‘Water Control’ which looks at responding to the realities of a resource constrained world. Here you can see the three posters that are on display in the Dublin Science Gallery.
