The future of water and
why you should care.
Let's Talk About Water (LTAW) is an environmental initiative which was started by film researcher Linda Lilienfeld as a film festival to draw attention to water issues around the globe. With the help of the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) and the Global Institute for Water Security (GIWS), it has evolved into the symbol for a number of water-related awareness projects.
How does a scientist who studies water by day sleep at night? Not well. As drought and flooding get more extreme, the head of the Global Institute for Water Security is looking for answers from around the world. Join host Jay Famiglietti as he and his colleagues meet people tackling our world’s water woes.
The LTAW Film & Water Festival is a unique program combining the power of film and the science of water to inform and engage students, faculty and the general public in active discussion about water issues and solutions. It has been held at universities and theaters around the world for over 10 years.
The next festival is set to be held in June, 2020, at the University of Saskatchewan, as part of Saskatoon Water Week!
