The Mountain Lakes Green Team is sponsoring another community gathering Wednesday, April 10th at 6:30 PM in the High School Media Center. The documentary – Flow: For Love of Water – will be shown, followed by a discussion about our own water lead by Ella Filippone, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Passaic River Coalition.
How clean is our water? Do we have enough? What are we doing to protect it? What rights do we have to protect it? And, who owns it anyway? These questions are answered on the global scale in the film, and Ella Filippone will address them regarding our own water supply, the Troy Brook Aquifer. Find out what we can do to protect water recharge areas, i.e. undeveloped lands, in our own and neighboring towns that share the aquifer.
Flow, an award-winning documentary, investigates what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis. A case is built against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.
Beyond identifying the problem, Flow also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.
This is one of a series of free Environmental Events put on by The Mountain Lakes Green Team. For more information contact Marnie Vyff at[masked] or [masked].
