The Kolshorn Lecture, part of the President's 21st Century Interdisciplinary Conference Series Dr. Peter H. Gleick, President Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment and Security in Oakland, California
Water is vital for human health, our economy, and the environment. Water also cuts across traditional lines of inquiry connecting science and economics with political and social concerns. As part of the University of Minnesota's Earth Week celebrations, world water expert Dr. Peter H. Gleick, a 2003 MacArthur Fellow, will give a wide-ranging talk on water issues in the new century and how we can prepare for the future with intelligent planning and a forward-looking vision. Free and open to the public.
