This Another Drop event will feature the launch of the UN report, Putting Water and Energy at the Heart of Sustainable Development, a reception announcing a new partnership between UNU-INWEH and EPCOR, and a seminar presentation on the importance of meeting water and energy targets post-2015.

Seminar Topic: Water and Energy for Societies, Equality, and Sustainable Development

As independent sectors and through their inextricable linkages, water and energy are key drivers of economic growth and social development. Together, water and energy can promote stable societies and human dignity as well as realize basic human rights. However, significant advances are required in policy, research, and practice to realize the benefits of this nexus. Specifically, there needs to be policy prioritization, technology mobilization, and investment shifts within and between both sectors. Ultimately, a dedicated water goal in the post-2015 development agenda, with key interlinked targets in the energy goal, is essential to achieving a sustainable future.

When? Tuesday March 10, 2015

Time? 6:00pm (Reception) 7:00pm (Lecture)

Where? McMaster Innovation Park 175 Longwood Road South Hamilton, ON. L8P 0A1

CBC Radio's Nora Young

  • Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2015
  • Time: 7:00 PM
  • Location: Burlington Public Library Central Branch
  • Address: 2331 New Street (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Craig
  • Email: loguec@bpl.on.ca
  • Phone: 905-639-3611x. 1321

The host of CBC Radio's "Spark" explores the very real impact of the virtual information we generate about ourselves--on our own lives, our communities, and our government. We generate enormous amounts of online data about our habits: where we go, what we do, and how we feel. Some of that is stuff we choose to report; some of it is the offhand data trails we leave behind.

Nora Young's "The Virtual Self" looks at the debates and challenges around virtual data-sharing--from Facebook status updates to Google Navigator--and its potential for building more responsive communities and governments.
