Bridging Waters Conversation Series
Bridging Waters came about as a need to talk about Water Sensitivity in a transdisciplinary way, see here: http://www.futurewater.uct.ac.
The point of Bridging Waters is to link with whomever and whatever we deem interesting and relevant to making the city a better place to live (through the water lens, but everything is affected by water so that's fine), in an informal, comfortable conversation.
The write up for the 5 September 2017 event: "What does water mean to landscape architects"
Dates for the 2018 events:
All events are scheduled for 15:30 to 18:00, in the New Engineering Building, Upper Campus UCT. Dates are subject to change.
22 February: The Importance of Trees in Liveable Cities.
19 April: Creating a water sensitive culture (the psychology of water related behaviour change, including enjoyment (Conserve, Value, Enjoy.))
The last three dates still need the topics finalised, likely to be the following:
- What is a catchment (How do civil engineers see this, estuarine managers? ecologists? urban planners? How do their views differ?)
- The economics of WSD (incorporating informality, inverse infrastructures)
- Cape Town as a Sponge City - what would it look like? A detailed visual dream at potential interventions at various scales
Event pages with specific info will be added in due course.
