WATER = LIFE – Traditional Wisdom and Science For a Sustainable Future:: Tucson, Arizona:: Nov. 10, 2012
The Great Gathering will have its FIRST EVER event in Tucson, Arizona on November 10th 2012. I hope you will join us!
Traditionally, trained elders are stewards of land and water who maintain intimate relationships with our natural world. Water is viewed as a source of life on the planet and is seen as a Sacred Element.
Scientists are now studying and documenting climate and environmental changes that are effecting water supply around the globe. They are seeking to create and support long-term climate adaptation to maintain and balance supplies with the need for water.
Join us for this rare cross-cultural event, as Indigenous Leaders collaborate with Scientists seeking to provide solutions for one of Earth’s most pressing environmental challenges of protecting and maintaining our water supplies.
