Fishman’s UGA talk will look at the history and future of water. He spent three years circling the globe—from Las Vegas to New Delhi—to uncover how the world of water is changing, and what the implications are. New water attitudes and the connection between water and a number of professional fields will also be presented.
Fishman is the author of “The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water” (2011), a bestselling book on water in America. His previous book, “The Wal-Mart Effect” (2006), has also become a bestseller, a catch phrase and an Economist Book of the Year. An award-winning senior writer for Fast Company, Fishman is an investigative journalist, specializing in business innovation and social responsibility. Fishman also blogs about water issues for National Geographic.
This seminar is co-sponsored by the EECP and HGOR, an Atlanta-based planning and landscape architecture firm.
