    Hope in the Anthropocene: Sustainability Solutions and Inspirations 
  •  
  • In 2014 the South African police shot and killed four people during a community march to municipal offices in Madibeng. This talk considers protest as an important response to the crisis of local governnance in South Africa. Drawing on experiences in Mothutlung, it examines the role of protest in the particular area of water services. It then analyses national protest data to assess water and sanitation protests as a means of understanding the broader direction of local change. Finally this talk reflects on options that are available to residents in pursuing their right to access drinking water.

    Mary Galvin will also be speaking at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability on Thursday, September 21. For details, please click here.
     
    This talk is co-sponsored by the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC.

    Hope in the Anthropocene is co-sponsored by the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability (IRES) at UBC.
