Round Table Discussion


Robin Madel, The Water Footprint Education Project
Kai Olson-Sawyer, GRACE Communications Foundation

Teaching about water usually means teaching about the water cycle but this leaves out the ways that water is connected to the production of food, energy and consumer goods.In this discussion, we will explore the more comprehensive concept of a "water footprint": how people use water and how educators can help students calculate their water footprints. We will also discuss ideas and resources for how to teach these concepts that can sometimes be abstract.
