More than 55 graduate and undergraduate students from all academic disciplines at the University of Nevada, Reno will present their research on local, regional, national and international water issues at the 11th annual Student World Water Forum.
The forum is hosted by the College of Agriculture Biotechnology and Natural Resources and is based on the international World Water Forum, which is held every three years in various locations around the world. The two-day forum will take place as part of International Education Week and will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 21, and 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., Friday, Nov. 22, in the Great Room on the fourth floor of the Joe Crowley Student Union.
"The students will speak about water issues that occur all around the world," Erik Cadaret, a graduate student studying hydrogeology, said. "We have students talking about water issues in the Middle East, South America, Africa, Greenland and many situations within the United States. Some students will talk about political and religious issues that affect water."
