McMaster Science for Peace proudly presents its annual themed
conference- GLASS HALF EMPTY, a conference on freshwater depletion
The focus of the conference is on translating evidence-based research into policy change!
Dr. Brian McCarry, who chairs ‘Clean Air Hamilton’, is an academic activist who is involved with much research surrounding the interrelated contamination of the earth, air, and water, but also policy changing activities such as the pursuit of environmental action against large companies such as Lafarge Cement. Dr. Gail Krantzberg, who is involved in governance policy discussions regarding Great Lakes management. Dr. Denis Corr, who is involved in many environmental
policy change discussions in Hamilton, will talk to us about how to turn good science into good actions through having the right content, the right process, and respect.
Representatives from the Polaris Institute will further discuss the privatization of water through the bottled water industry. Workshops will discuss key players in international water discussions that affect management policies.
Breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge.
Events run from 9AM to 4PM in the Council Chamber (Gilmour Hall 111) of McMaster University on Saturday March 13th.
