Welcoming remarks by ASU President Michael M Crow.
Since ancient times, civilizations have struggled to control water, wringing every drop out of this precious resource. Today, freshwater resources are threatened by a rising population and the effects of climate change.
Join us for a dynamic dialogue where a panel of scientists and policymakers will discuss how shifting climate patterns are stressing our freshwater resources and how we can develop better, more sustainable water practices. Audience Q&A will follow.
