Confluences: Water & Justice

Event Date: 
March 26, 2010 - 14:00 - March 28, 2010 - 00:00

Join some of the nation’s leading experts at the University of Portland for the Confluences: Water & Justice symposium on March 26-28, 2010, to examine various perspectives on water, including environmental justice, protection, science, theology, business, history, law, and the Native American perspective.

The symposium opens Friday afternoon, March 26, with a lecture and cruise on the Willamette River followed by a screening of The Water Front, a documentary film on water rights in Michigan. Afterwards, director Liz Miller answers questions.

On Saturday, March 27, and Sunday, March 28, over twenty experts share their expertise in concurrent sessions. Most sessions pair speakers of different viewpoints to promote discussion.

Maude Barlow – author, activist, and senior advisor on water to the president of the UN General Assembly – gives the keynote address on Saturday night.

Conference registration for Confluences: Water & Justice is free. Tickets for Maude Barlow's keynote are $10 per person; free for ILLAHEE season ticket holders, conference hosts and sponsors, and University of Portland faculty, staff, and students.
