Author Robert Glennon to Deliver Keynote at 2017 Clarke Prize Conference (Oct 20)  

Registration Is Now Open at www.regonline.com/clarke2017


University of Arizona Professor and award-winning author Robert Glennon will deliver the keynote address, “Our Future in a Warming, Water-Stressed World,” during the 2017 NWRI Clarke Prize Conference on October 20, 2017, in Irvine, California.


Glennon’s keynote presentation will address water sustainability issues from a global standpoint before focusing on challenges facing the United States, as well as possible solutions.  He will use real-world examples, like the Oroville Dam spillway and the Flint water crisis, to illustrate why the nation’s water and wastewater infrastructure should be updated to adapt to unpredictable climate conditions that may worsen with climate change.


Glennon has given lectures around the world to help the public understand current water policy and what can be done to build a sustainable water future.  His second book, “Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What to Do About It,” received a Rachel Carson Book Award from the Society of Environmental Journalists.  In 2014, he co-authored a report that received widespread national attention for its exploration of how federal and state laws have contributed to water shortages in California and other Western states.  His work has been featured in the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, and he has made guest appearances on various television and radio shows, including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.


Glennon’s keynote is one highlight of the 2017 Clarke Prize Conference, which will focus on research and innovations in urban water sustainability.  Online registration is now open.  For more information about the conference or to register, please visit www.clarkeprize.com.
