Date: Thursday, April 12, 2018

Event Sponsor: Humanities Washington
It feels like not a day goes by without a story in the news that relates to some water issue. Whether it’s lead in schools, drought in California, or dwindling snowpack in Washington, water scarcity is a challenge that needs our attention - now. In this talk, participants learn about water scarcity and its effects both globally and at local levels here in Washington State. Participants are challenged to consider how they value water in its different uses, and explore whether taking an ethical approach to water issues changes how we manage and govern water on our increasingly thirsty and crowded planet.
Rachel Cardone has spent nearly 20 years working on water issues as an economist, writer, policy maker, philanthropist, and advisor to public, private, and non-profit organizations. Prior to returning to independent consulting in 2012, she spent five years establishing the Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Cardone has traveled or worked in over 50 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas, and has spent several years facilitating workshops, training sessions, and meetings for a range of audiences. She has a Masters of Public Administration from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, with a focus on Energy Policy & Finance, and a BA in History (Anthropology minor) from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. Cardone lives in Chimacum.
