Water is the earth’s most precious resource and there’s no place with as much fresh water as the Great Lakes region.
But threats to our water abound. World Water Day—being celebrated at Michigan Tech and around the world on March 22nd—will show ways how we can make the most of our water.
Assistant Professor of Economics Latika Gupta says the theme of this year’s event is Wastewater.
Michigan Tech has several days of events planned for World Water Day. For a full schedule and more information on the panelist, wastewater competition and the keynote speaker, click here.
