Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2007
This description of Eugen Tóth's work was prepared when Eugen Tóth was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Eugen Tóth is bringing groundbreaking solutions to the challenges of microclimate change in urban areas, while also changing citizen’s attitudes about the importance of rainwater. Since most people live in cities, Eugen’s solution has strength in its simplicity—holding and circulating water where it falls to impact a wide area. Using campaigns, negotiation, education, and discussion, he is creating new possibilities for water conservation.
