The Meaning of Water

The Meaning of Water

Location/Time and Date: Saturday March 20th 10:30am – 4:00pm on the HMS President Boat moored on the Thames, near Embankment Tube Station.

The RAI’s ‘Meaning of Water’ event focuses on the connections between water, conservation and community. The event aims to raise public awareness of research and development projects undertaken by anthropologists, social scientists and NGOs, in the UK and abroad. Through presentations, films and exhibitions, the event explores two main themes: 1) access, advocacy and fresh water management; and 2) sustainability and livelihoods. It hopes to address questions such as: how are communities finding local solutions to water scarcity? In what ways can we decrease our water footprint? What are the repercussions of water being treated as a commodity rather than as common right? We hope that through this event participants will better understand our interdependent relationship to water both locally and globally, and foster collaboration between associated groups of individuals.
