The news has been ablaze with information on California’s current water drought crisis. Governor Brown has declared a drought emergency due to record low levels of rainfall and snowpack in the Sierra Nevada, which supplies roughly 1/3 of water needs to Californians. Many communities are in danger of running out of water and are facing challenges on how to combat limited water supplies.
If it were ever a time to discuss water challenges and solutions to Californians and beyond, it is now.
Next month, experts and professors alike will speak on a variety of issues pertaining to water, ranging from sessions regarding the global, national, state, and local levels. Just one of the many speakers, the keynote speaker, Peter Gleick, will discuss a modern U.S. water policy.
Sponsored by the American Institute for Progressive Democracy and the 5Cs, this event is a great place to get ideas brewing for how to tackle the issue of water scarcity.
