Transition Berkeley Presents: Where Has All The Water Gone?

This event has passed.

And How Can We Conserve the Water We Have?

Transiton Berkeley invites you to join us for an evening of film and conversation about water.

We’ll learn about the reasons the water supply is dwindling by viewing a 30 minute portion of the award winning film “Last Call at the Oasis”. In the discussion following the viewing we’ll talk about solutions.

Special Guest speaker Matt Freiberg from the City of Berkeley’s Climate Action Coalition will give an update on the state of our local water supply and information about water policy debates in California as well as practical steps we can take to conserve water at home. During the discussion period we’ll have an opportunity to talk to experienced gardeners who have converted their thirsty lawns to drought tolerant native plant gardens, home owners who’ve diverted their greywater to fruit trees and practical folks who’ve found lots of ways to save and reuse water at home.

Bring your own ideas for water conservation and harvesting rainwater and greywater at home. Also bring ideas for ways we can organize to put pressure statewide on the big water users and public policy makers who are squandering our precious water reserves. Feel free to bring the kids. this event is family friendly. Light and local refreshments will be served.
This event is co-sponsored by Transition Berkeley, Berkeley Climate Action Coalition Water Working Group and the BFUU Social Justice Committee.

This location is wheelchair accessible via the ramp on the Bonita Avenue side of the building.
