Humanities Washington presents a free discussion on water scarcity featuring speaker, Rachel Cardone, economist, and policy maker. 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. Participants are challenged to consider how they value water in its different used, and explore whether taking an ethical approach to water issues changes how we manage and govern water on our increasingly thirsty and crowded planet. Event begins at 5:30 pm on Thursday, April 19th. This event is free and open to the public. For more information contact the MCE at Museum@cwu.edu or (509) 963-2313.
