MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — Montana State University Billings Professor of Geography, Dr. Susan Gilbertz, is a featured panelist for World Water Day Event on April 7 at 10 a.m. This event will be held at Art House Cinema and Pub in Billings.

 

The public is invited to join the non-profit organization, Hope 2 One Life, with a local and global panel of experts and activists in celebration of World Water Day 2018. 

 

The panel discussion addressing water issues in our region and globally will follow the synopsis film screening of “Running Dry.”  Dr. Gilbertz joins fellow panelists who are familiar with international water issues and projects in the developing world, and local issues in the Yellowstone River basin. Panelists will share and discuss a few water issues of their choosing on local and world water issues, as well as green and grey infrastructure solutions.

 

“Running Dry” is a documentary that highlights some of the water issues facing our world. It is the first in the series of documentaries about the water crisis by The Chronicles Group and was filmed on location in China, India, The Middle East and the United States. It was inspired by the late Senator Paul Simon and his book “Tapped Out”. 

 

The theme for World Water Day 2018 is Nature for Water, exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges humans face in the 21st century. The audience will be exposed to many facets of this universal problem, as well as explore solutions, while listening to diverse experts from around the world.

 

This event is free and open to the public.
