Event Description

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 led by economist and former Gates Foundation policy maker Rachel Cardone, participants learn about water scarcity and its effects both globally and at local levels here in Washington State. Participants are challenged 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 an increasingly thirsty and crowded planet.
