“International World Water Day is held annually on March 22 as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources” (www.unwater.org)

The Canadian Water Resources Association (www.cwra.org) and Engineers without Borders (www.ewb.ca) are partnering to organize a day of discussion to celebrate World Water Day 2012. This year’s theme “Water and Food Security” will be addressed through a variety of speakers and presentations that will highlight the importance of the management of our freshwater resources.

Check the Agenda tab for a full list of speakers at this event and their topics.  Peter Holmes, a local photographer will also have his work on display which highlights the issue of water consumption. For more information on Peter go to www.waterportraits.org.
