Big event planned for Yellow Springs, Ohio for November 7, 2008
This Friday, November 7, 2008, The Water Front continues on the tour to Ohio, where it will screen at 7:30 PM, at the Yellow Springs Senior Center,
227 Xenia Ave., Yellow Springs, OH.
Immediately following the film, a panel of water experts including local water geology specialist Peter Townsend and professors Dr. Subramania I. Sritharan, Dr. Ramani Kandiah, and Dr. Krishna Kumar Nedunuri from the International Center for Water Resources Management at Central State University will respond to the film and the issues it raises, reflecting on the water resource situations that exist locally and globally.
"These discussions are essential to developing local, regional, national, and international plans for long-term sustainability. As the threats of global climate change accrue and expand, water will become a more and more pressing resource. Coming to understand the challenges of equitable water access is essential to avoiding the resource wars that could result over this absolutely essential resource," says professor and event organizer Dr. Colette Palamar.
This promises to be an exciting and informative night of documentary and debate.
