YOU’RE INVITED THE FOOD DIALOGUES®: TOLEDO Balancing Food Production and Clean Water
Thursday, May 28, 2015 | 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
The 2014 Toledo water crisis drew worldwide attention to a crucial question: How do we balance our need for clean water with our need for abundant food?
The toxic algal bloom that caused 500,000 people to be without tap water made the relationship between food and water a high priority for citizens, government, farmers, environmentalists and businesses.
Please join us for a discussion, moderated by Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist Gail Hogan, that will feature diverse panelists discussing the environmental, agricultural, social and economic aspects of this critical topic.
You’re invited to view this event online live via Livestream.
