How do we share the stuff that nobody owns but everyone needs? Water is one of our most precious and finite resources, but it’s also under threat from climate change, overzealous development, and inconsistent governance. Join Radhika Fox, CEO of the US Water Alliance, which advocates for a “one water movement,” and Kim Wasserman-Nieto, executive director of the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, for a conversation about local and national approaches to water security and sustainability. Michael Tiboris from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs joins them in conversation.
This program is generously underwritten by the Make It Better Foundation.
A Talkback hosted by the Metropolitan Planning Council will follow this program in the James Parlor, Second Floor.
Michael Tiboris is a Global Water Fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and Public Fellow for the American Council of Learned Societies. He specializes in ethical issues in water access and the role of water in foreign policy. His work has appeared in both academic journals and popular media, including Social Theory and Practice, The Georgetown Journal of International Affairs, The National Interest, and Foreign Policy.
