H2OMG! Making Sense of Water Scarcity in an Insecure World

January 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

It feels like not a day goes by without a story in the news that relates to some water issue. Whether it’s lead in schools, drought in California, or dwindling snowpack in Washington, water scarcity is a challenge that needs our attention—now. In this talk, participants learn about water scarcity and its effects both globally and at local levels here in Washington State. Join Chimacum resident Rachel Cordone as she challenges participants to consider how they value water in its different uses, and explore whether taking an ethical approach to water issues changes how we manage and govern water on our increasingly thirsty and crowded planet. Co-Sponsored by Humanities Washington.
