Water: Science of a Human Right

Description:


Two-thirds of our planet is covered with it, yet only three percent is fresh. It’s the stuff that no human can go more than three days without and has come to be regarded as “blue gold”. In some parts of the world it is taken for granted, while in others the shortage of it has lead to war. Although it is part of a cycle, it is becoming increasingly unavailable. This presentation guides audiences through the enigma that is water and associated science, politics, economics, and outlooks for the future.



Lecture presented by Michele Hoffman Trotter, Professor of Marine Science and Sustainability Columbia College Chicago, Roosevelt University, and The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.
