IN THE light of the proposed pulp mill, the siltation of the Tamar, climate change, the ongoing debate about timber plantations and the threatened privatisation of our water supply, the issue of water has become one of crucial importance.

Now We the People (Tasmania) will be conducting a seminar on WATER, Policy Needs and the Future at the LAUNCESTON ENVIRONMENT CENTRE
1.30 – 5.00 pm Sunday 2 March 2008
Keynote speaker Dr David Leaman
Dr Leaman is an eminent Tasmanian hydrologist, the author of a number of books, including Water: Facts, issues, problems and solutions. His talk will focus on how we can manage available water resources in a time of change so as to sustain both our economy and our environment.

There is no charge, but donations to cover expenses will be gratefully received. Because of space limitations, you will need to register in advance. You can register by email or by phone: 6331 9658.

You can also read more about these issues and make you own contribution on our web site:
