This year’s World Water Day is about accelerating change, aimed at solving the global water and sanitation crisis. 🌎
Did you know:
💧 1 in 4 people – 2 billion people – around the world lack safe drinking water.
💧 Almost half of the global population – 3.6 billion people – lack safe sanitation.
💧 Globally, 44 per cent of household wastewater is not safely treated.
💧 Wetlands are being drained for agriculture, with more than 50 per cent lost since 1900.
Join us on March 22, from 9am-noon in the University of Guelph SOE atrium (University of Guelph, Thornbrough Building) to learn more about how you can make a difference, and hear talks from John Spoelstra, Bassim Abbassi and Samantha Mehltretter.
Morwick G360 Groundwater Research Institute is proud to be hosting this event (free – but please register through Eventbrite). We look forward to seeing you there!
