Let’s Talk About Water Film and Water Event
Recife, Brazil May 29, 2015
Let’s Talk About Water brings film and hydrologic science together to spark meaningful dialogue amongst scientists, students, policymakers and the general public. We are very happy to be invitated to Recife by professor Maria do Carmo Sobral at the Federal University of Pernambuco (department of Civil Engineering). This tropical and estuarine city with several water related problems, had its origin in the navigation of the Atlantic and had on their rivers the first transport routes and town supply for various purposes. Today the impact of metropolization causes great pressure on the water bodies of the city, a subject always in focus with the population, and this event will be helpful in discussing these important issues with the community.
