You are invited to a lunch at 12:00 pm on Tuesday, February 24, 2015, at Graham Institute North, 214 S. State St. (next to Sava’s).
This lunch will feature a presentation by Brian Neff, a recent PhD graduate from the University of Waterloo. Brian will discuss the real-world application of “resilience thinking” to overcome pathological resistance to change in water management. He will share lessons from his research in the Caribbean and discuss potential applications to the Great Lakes.
The purpose of our lunch meetings are to help build an interdisciplinary network of U-M faculty working internationally, especially on issues related to water. Thus, while we are sending this invitation to a targeted list, certainly feel free to forward this invitation to any colleagues that may be interested in attending.
If you plan to attend, please register by February 18. Space is limited so please respond as soon as you can. While the lunch meeting will end at 1:00 pm, we encourage attendees to continue discussions into the afternoon.
