President Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson will be a panelist at the “Civic Engagement Management of Water Resources” discussion panel at 10 am with the Nile Project, hosted by the University Of Florida Performing Arts, located in the Squitieri Studio Theatre located in the Phillips Center.
Nile Project founder Mina Girgis and a panel of experts will explore the use of innovative civic engagement strategies to overcome political stakeholder barriers, create a common understanding between competing interests and build constituencies for action both between and within nations where water has become an impediment to peace and socio-economic development.
This discussion promises to interact with many disciplines and should be of interest to people with ties to water & natural sciences, sustainability, international relations, political science, economics, law and mediation, anthropology, and many other fields.
The panel begins at 10 am and will last approximately 2 hours.
