Philomathia Water Futures Reception + Distinguished Lectures
The United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health and McMaster University will be hosting an Award Ceremony and wine and cheese reception for the graduating Water Without Borders students, faculty and supporters. We hope you will be able to join us in the awards ceremony and in welcoming the new students for the 2014-2015 year.
In addition, distinguished lectures will be presented on Climate, Water and Society. Whether through extreme events or sea-level rise, many of the impacts of climate change are delivered by water. The challenges are complex, and the need for science to inform decision-making has never been greater. This distinguished lecture hosts leading practitioners in Canada and the US to learn lessons from the frontlines of efforts to respond to climate change.
