Water UCI is pleased to announce a special guest lecture by Dr. Aaron Wolf, professor of geography in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. 

Healing the Enlightenment Rift: Rationality, Spirituality, and Shared Waters March 2, 2017 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. followed by a catered reception Calit2 Auditorium, UCI

About: Water management is, by definition, conflict management: Whether in the Western US or internationally, competing stakeholder interests include domestic users, agriculturalists, hydropower generators, recreators, and environmentalists – any two of which are regularly at odds, and the complexity of finding mutually acceptable solutions increases exponentially as more stakeholders are involved. This presentation will discuss conflict and cooperation over shared water resources internationally and in the US West, and reflect on processes of conflict transformation, including lessons from both Western and spiritual models of dialogue.
