Water You Waiting For?

News Story

Join the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment on April 13 for a conference about the environmental future of H20.

Water is, well, maybe the most important substance on earth. As the world continues to undergo environmental changes, new strategies are needed to manage water to better serve our planet and its many ecosystems. That’s where Dyson comes in.

This year’s third annual Resilience Summit, hosted by the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment, will bring together experts and practitioners from the public, academic, and private sectors to discuss collaborative problem-solving strategies for the protections and sharing of water resources. Topics will include range from the local to the global and include water scarcity, watershed management, transboundary conflicts, and more.
