Fluid Thinking: Water Justice In a Changing Climate, University of Guelph, Apr. 3, 2020

Water justice is inherently without boundaries; it moves between various connected disciplines, such as philosophy, law, history, engineering, and geography. “Fluid Thinking: Water Justice in a Changing Climate” brings together academic professionals and the general public to discuss this most pressing issue. The transdisciplinary nature of water justice requires study that intersects ethical, scientific, cultural, and justice-related themes and concerns which are reflected in the presentations and discussions of this conference.
