Description

Floods and droughts are growing more frequent and intense not just from climate change but also due to our development patterns. But today -- in California, Peru, India, Kenya, and elsewhere -- people are asking a revolutionary question: What does water want? We've erased many of water's slow phases in wetlands, floodplains and forests. What water wants is to reclaim that space. Practioners of what I'm calling the "Slow Water movement" -- inspired by ancient geology, microbes, beavers, older cultures, and cutting-egde science -- are now making space for water within our human habitats.

Learning Objectives

  1. Accept that we are causing many of our water problems.
  2. Explain the Slow Water movement.
  3. Change our relationship with water to one of collaboration.
