In a very special launch of the Wisconsin Academy’s renewed Waters of Wisconsin Initiative, global water expert Sandra Postel returns to Madison to discuss the threats to our precious freshwater resources—and what we can do about them. She will discuss the challenge of feeding and sustaining seven billion people in a warming, water-stressed world—while at the same time preserving the freshwater ecosystems that support our economies and the web of life on the planet. Postel directs the Global Water Policy Project and is Freshwater Fellow of the National Geographic Society.
