FIREtalks are back! Let’s talk Drinking Water.

FIREtalk: Drinking Water

1 in 3 people globally do not have access to safe drinking water. By 2025, half of the World’s population is expected to be living in water-stressed areas. Will we run out of water? What are the direct and indirect impacts of this change on individuals, communities and nations? How can we insure safe drinking water in the future? How can we provide safe drinking water to remote communities?

Collaborate, network, and explore ideas across conventional disciplinary boundaries.

Join us Wednesday, November 27th in the UBC Library Research Commons (Koerner Library floor 5) from 4:00-6:00 pm for FIREtalks, an interdisciplinary discussion forum run by graduate students for graduate students.

What is a FIREtalk?

A FIREtalk (Facilitated Interdisciplinary Research Exchange) is a mix of brief presentations, activities, and discussion, all relating to a common theme. FIREtalks are a great opportunity to:

  • share your research
  • be inspired by research in other disciplines
  • connect with graduate students who share your interests.
