CoE Lecture: “The True Worth of Water”

Ally “Wa-Wa” Wang ’12 writes in, pointing us towards the latest effort by College of the Environment and Prof. William Pinch (along with his leather jacket, I suppose) to save the world:

Interested in learning about water issues? Come to Earth House for an informal panel to hear professors and students talk about hidden costs and politics surrounding water.

This Wednesday night, 3 of the fellows at the College of Environment’s Think Tank are speaking at Earth House about the “True Worth of Water.” We tend to think that water issues don’t apply here in Connecticut, but the water around us is not free, and politics of use surround it. The water bottle interns will also be there to talk about getting rid of water bottles at Wesleyan.

There will be a discussion afterwards.

Time: 6:30 pm – 8.00pm
