This free open conference seeked to explore water through its symbolic, ecological and geopolitical functions.

The day comprised of key note speakers Ed Stourton (Journalist and Radio 4 presenter) and Dr. Abimbola O. Odumosu (Save the Children & Unicef), clips of the new BBC series ‘Sacred Rivers’, as well as presentations and posters by colleagues from across the University, together with commentaries from a number of invited experts.

Our aim was to highlight the different meanings and values placed on water as a strategic resource against a backdrop of globalisation and climate change.

This event was free and open to all staff and students.
