Inquiring Mind Lecture: H2OMG! Making Sense of Water Scarcity in an Insecure World with Rachel Cardone
Rarely does a day go by without a story in the news relating to an issue concerning water, and water scarcity is a world-wide challenge. Learn more about water issues in this discussion presented by Humanities Washington speaker, Rachel Cardone.
Cardone will discuss water scarcity and its effects both globally and at local levels 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 increasingly thirsty and crowded planet.
