An Earth Out of Water

A conference to launch the Second United Nations Decade of Water
Local and Global Perspectives on the Water Crisis

March 18 and 19, 2005
Main Floor ETLC, University of Alberta

Registration is $25 or $15 (without lunch)
Download the registration form at www.changeforchildren.org or www.ualberta.ca/parkland

Conference Program and speakers below.

The state of water in Alberta remains a critical and contested key issue and this symposium is a challenge to all Albertans to respond to and understand the dirty business of clean water in Alberta. The health and well being of all Albertans depends on the health of our water. Water as a public good is increasingly coming into conflict with the goals and decisions being made by government, and industry.

Speakers will address various themes related to water from the legal battles being waged in the province to the depth of privatization and what that means to our social and economic well being.

For more information contact Change for Children at (780)448-1505 , or Parkland Institute at (780) 492-8558. Conference posters can be printed off of the Change for Children website. Read more about An Earth Out of Water: Local and Global Perspectives on the Water Crisis
