Water, Cooperation, and Conflict
Register today for the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment’s Summit on Resilience. Registration is due by April 6.
Water is essential to life. An age of vast global change demands new strategies to manage this substance upon which our planet's ecosystem depends. This year’s summit, the third annual, will bring together experts and practitioners from the public, academic and private sectors to discuss collaborative problem-solving strategies for the protection and sharing of water resources. Topics will include transboundary cnoflicts, local water scarcity, local watershed management, and more.
Hosted by the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment, this one-day conference, held at the Schimmel Center on Pace’s New York City Campus, will include prominent keynote speakers and panels covering local, national and global water challenges and solutions. This year’s keynote speakers include Peter H. Gleick, PhD, president emeritus and chief scientist, Pacific Institute; and John Freedman, Global Partnerships and Government Affairs Leader, GE Water. Morning, midday, and afternoon sessions will anchor the summit.
Interested faculty and staff members must register by April 6 to participate. Stay tuned for more information about the summit, which will be available for the April edition of Opportunitas.
