  • Date February 11, 2010
  • Time 4:45 pm to 6:00 pm
  • Location North Building, Room 134

We have teamed up with the UTM Green Team (Facebook Link) and the Ministry of Environment to bring two more engaging events to the UTM community as part of Water Awareness Week 2010.

1. Public Lecture
“Freshwater – Challenges Facing Mexico in the 21st Century”
Dr. Harvey Shear

Thursday, February 11, 2010
11:45 am
North Building, Room 134
Free Admission

Mexico presently has an uneven distribution of freshwater across time and
space. Per capita water availability has been declining since 1900 and is
predicted to become worse due to climate change and population growth.

This talk by Dr. Harvey Shear will explore some of the major freshwater issues facing Mexico in the 21st Century, and will include a case study of a small lake in western Mexico.

Part 2: Documentary Screening
