Cloudy with a Chance of Solutions:
The Future of Water
Friday, October 12, 2012 | 9 am – 5 pm
Radcliffe Gymnasium, 10 Garden Street, Radcliffe Yard
The Radcliffe Institute’s annual science symposium will focus on the important and challenging topic of water. Water is a theme that encompasses issues as varied as environmental contamination, public health, agricultural shortages, and geopolitical disputes. “Cloudy with a Chance of Solutions: The Future of Water” will focus on the ecological and human health hazards of environmental contaminants, the threats to drinking water of fracking, the promise of new technologies for water treatment, the need for national water policy, and the role of urban and other areas in conservation. The majority of the talks will focus on the “hard science” of water-related issues; others will offer the perspectives of experts from the policy, business, or urban-planning worlds to put the scientific discussions in a broader context and to link them thematically.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
For more information and to register, please visit www.radcliffe.harvard.edu or call 617-495-8600.
