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.za/Urbanists-28jun17

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"
