Advancing WaSH Goals in a Changing World Through Innovation and Resilience
The challenges of climate change and resource shortages require innovative approaches to advance resiliency and mitigation in WaSH (water, sanitation, and hygiene).
This one-day conference will address the urgent need for new technologies and new data analytics in water management throughout the world in order to adapt to the future realities of more extreme weather patterns and events, sea-level rising, glacier melting, and drought. Innovative thinking is needed. Successful implementation of new and modern (water) management tools will be highlighted; innovative approaches for community involvement and commercial buy-in will be debated; and practical solutions as brokered by governing bodies, market suppliers, and adjusted legal frameworks will be highlighted. All stakeholder groups will be represented.
We approach these questions from a place of curiosity about what can be learned through comparisons, conversations, and disagreements between embedded thinking and that of specialists, acknowledging the authority of experts but not assuming that embedded connections can or should always follow exactly the same standards.

In this course Roger Turner will show how the Nobel Prize can be an entry point for more inclusive stories about the people who work in science.
Historians and social scientists of science, technology, and medicine discuss their collaborative work to develop and deploy “embedded connections” in the humanities and STEM fields.
Join us for a night of “whodunits” and solve a historical forensics murder mystery.
