Phoenix - Science Cafe Topic: Equity in the Nano City

Topic: Equity in the Nano City

Speakers: Timothy Boyd, Humanist,

Ira Bennet, Technical Professional

From the water pump to the steam engine and from water skins to microfiltration units, technology has been used to solve problems. The technological revolution transformed our understanding of water. Water started as a common good, accessible to all people. As cities grew, water became both a public good, controlled by the city, and a private good, bought and sold in the free market. How can inequities in the market be addressed in the Nano city?

    Very interesting; in particular the delivery was unique. This was easily the most interactive Science Cafe I've been to and in large measure that was the whole point of the evening: the evolution of science centers has led them to facilitate dialog. It worked!
