H2O Action: 'Water as a Human Right' Workshop

March 22, 2010 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm
At last week’s SEAWA conference, Hydrologist Richard Clissold made it very clear with his statement “We’re in a desert here” in Medicine Hat and it's getting drier every day. Water management is becoming an increasingly important issue in Alberta, particularly in the South Saskatchewan River Basin where we have seen extremely low flows with growing community and industrial demands. This World Water Day, Sierra Club (Prairie) and Medicine Hat College will host two events to bring to light issues of water within the province and emphasize why any plans and policies that involve water management need to focus on conservation and view water as a fundamental human right and necessary element for a healthy environment.

Who:     Representatives from the Sierra Club Prairie Chapter, Greenpeace, the Environmental Law Centre, University of Lethbridge, and a grassroots water network in Saskatchewan
What:    A workshop and panel discussion on water issues in Alberta.
When:   World Water Day, March 22

  • H2OAction - 'Water as a Human Right' – Workshop, 12:00 p.m. to 1 p.m.
  • 'A River Runs Through It’ - Perspectives Panel on the South Saskatchewan River Basin, 7:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.
