Another Drop Lecture

  • Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2016
  • Time: 7:00pm
  • Location: Conference room 1AB
  • Address: 175 Longwood Road South (Google Maps)
  • Contact: UNU-INWEH
  • Email: contact.inweh@unu.edu
  • Phone: 9056675511

UNU-INWEH is pleased to announce its next free public lecture: Another Drop...From Your Tap!

Water has a multitude of uses and touches on almost every aspect of our lives. Yet, almost 663 million people in the world lack access to safe water. Clean drinking water is a human right taken for granted in Canada. However, with climate change, increasing populations and worsening pollution, water may become a much-sought after commodity here too.

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan - Hamilton’s sister city - highlights the potential for water insecurity anywhere. UNU-INWEH presents a panel of experts to explore the topics related to water security by answering three questions: • Why did Flint happen; can it happen here? • Why do people around the world lack access to clean water; can it happen here? and • Do we need to rethink water management?

Speakers include McMaster University's Dr. Sarah Dickson as well as UNU-INWEH's Dr. Lisa Guppy and Dr. Nidhi Nagabhatla.

Hope to see you there!

  • Address: 300 Roxborough Ave (Google Maps)

It's coming-- the third annual Pipeline Parade! On Saturday September 24 from 10 am to noon, join your Crown Point and Homeside neighbours for a fun, family-friendly walk along the Pipeline Trail. This year's parade theme is “Flying Free”. Decorate your bike, your wagon, or your costume-- let your imagination soar! Or feel free to come and watch the parade take flight.

Starting at 10 a.m. at the A.M. Cunningham Parkette (between Wexford & Huxley) the parade follows the trail east to the Barons Avenue entrance to Andrew Warburton Park. There paraders will enjoy a free pizza party, kite making, paper crafts, and the float/costume contest awards.

Win a prize for the most creative float or costume in four categories: adult, youth age 13 to 17, child age 7 to 12 and child under 7 years. Please note: with the exception of mobility scooters, the parade is completely human-powered. No motorized vehicles or motorized toys are allowed.

Enjoy your trail, have fun and celebrate the community asset that links several neighbourhoods, commercial corridors, and park spaces. The trail is both a reminder of our city's ambitious past and potential as a place where active transportation, neighbourhoods and biodiversity can thrive.

Will you be flying free on September 24 at the Pipeline Parade? We'd love to hear from you. Please confirm with Elizabeth Seidl at pipelinetrail.hamilton@gmail.com or call/text 905-599-6830.
