The UK’s Water, Engineering and Development Centre to be held at Loughborough University, UK, is having it’s 38th Annual Conference. This year’s theme is on “Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Services Beyond 2015: Improving access and sustainability”.
Have a look at the University of Waterloo’s Water Institute’s RBC Distinguished Lecture 2015, Dr. Sunita Narain (Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi, India) Live Stream of: “Challenges for Water Security in the Poor’s World:
The agenda for research and policy to manage water scarcity, plenty, pollution and waste in an age of climate risk”. Thank you Water Institute!
Henk Haitjema (Editor, Ground Water)’s ‘Teaching Moment’, as presented in the Pillars of Hydrogeology Plenary Session at NGWA’s 2015 Summit meeting. Kind thanks the NGWA for permission.

Listen to Cathy Ryan (Professor, University of Calgary and HWB volunteer!) as she explains the vision for GW2.0 in the ‘Pillars of Groundwater’ session that honoured Dr. John Cherry and Dr. Al Freeze. In addition to talking about the impact that GW2.0 might have, she introduces “Teaching Moments in Hydrogeology” idea, where groundwater teaching veterans impart lessons learned.
The National Groundwater Association’s permission to share this presentation publicly is very much appreciated. Stay tuned for the first ‘Teaching Moments in Hydrogeology’ talks, coming your way soon.
We’re THRILLED that Peter Russell, longtime champion and curator of the University of Waterloo’s Earth Sciences Museum, and champion behind the Children’s Groundwater Festivalhas agreed to work on illustrations for GW2.0!
Peter was the illustrator for the cover and chapter logos in Groundwater (1979). You might not have noticed his acknowledgement inside the cover (see below). He tells us that the GW2.0 work will be in colour :).
If you are considering taking Giving Tuesday Challenge or contributing the United Way, consider directing your donations to HWB. You can use this United Way 2014 HWB Targeted Pledge Form (with HWB’s Charity Number included). Cathy Ryan will personally contribute the $12 fee the United Way charges to direct donations!
Have a look at the UNESCO and WMO’s International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre‘s new video on ‘Groundwater, the Hidden Resource’. It starts with the fact that about 50 percent of the world’s population is groundwater dependent….
“Very nice initiative!
You can count on Baseline Water to contribute in December.”
