    LECTURE: ANOTHER DROP... FROM YOUR TAP!
    7:00 PM to 0:00 0 Water has a multitude of uses and touches on almost every aspect of our lives. Yet, almost 663 million people in the world lack access to safe water. Clean drinking water is a human right taken for granted in Canada. However, with climate change, increasing populations and worsening pollution, water may become a much-sought after commodity here too. The water crisis in Flint, Michigan - Hamilton’s sister city - highlights the potential for water insecurity anywhere. A panel of experts explore the topics related to water security by answering three questions: • Why did Flint happen; can it happen here? • Why do people around the world lack access to clean water; can it happen here? and • Do we need to rethink water management? Speakers include McMaster University's Dr. Sarah Dickson as well as UNU-INWEH's Dr. Lisa Guppy and Dr. Nidhi Nagabhatla.
