In recognition of this year’s World Water Day, Michelle Mungall, MLA for Nelson-Creston, is bringing together four of British Columbia’s influential women crusaders to talk about water. Women and Water – The Live Talk Show takes place March 22 at Performance Works on Granville Island from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
Based on a radio podcast series entitled Women and Water, created by Mungall, comes a new, live talk show event that shines a light on this very issue. Women and Water – The Live Talk Show, brings together a group of dynamic women of different ages, experiences and backgrounds to discuss their views on water issues.
Along with Michelle Mungall, the event features CBC Radio 3 host, Lana Gay, Western Canada Wilderness Committee’s policy director, Gwen Barlee, Founder of Lovesocial.org Azita Ardakani, and Karen Sander of Vancouver fashion label Obakki’s charity, the Obakki Foundation. This diverse yet complimentary mix of passionate and knowledgeable women come from the corners of our local music, fashion, environmental and entertainment communities to spark conversation around water sustainability in our daily lives.
This free public event is a casual and candid setting, where the audience asks questions of the guest speakers and share their own stories. A live stream of the show will be posted on the Women and Water website for all those unable to attend the event.
Island Issues discussed will range from water ownership, the bottled water crisis and top tips for conserving water. The women will also shine a light on global water issues and how they relate to our local situation.
