Dylan Terrell, co-founder and Executive Director of Caminos de Agua (Caminos from now on), a local non-for-profit organization working on regional water issues, has been invited by the Jewish Cultural and Community Center of San Miguel to give an online talk regarding the current state of water in San Miguel de Allende and the surrounding region. This is an important opportunity to learn more about a growing crisis that affects us all and have your questions answered.
Caminos has been working for the past 10 years to provide open-source water solutions for communities at-risk on our aquifer in Central Mexico and leverage those solutions for others confronting similar water challenges around the globe.
The Caminos team is made up of a full and part time staff, plus graduate-level interns, and senior directors and advisers. They’re a mix of Mexicans and international residents, technologists, community organizers, researchers, and educators united by our dedication to public health and welfare.
They work in partnership with local communities, leading research institutions, and other diverse actors to innovate and implement water solutions that create adequate access to safe, healthy drinking water supplies. They also act as a “finishing school” for aspiring, socially-responsible engineers, scientists, and other young professionals and interns looking to make social and environmental impacts in their work.
Our water crisis is increasingly affecting us all, even in the urban centers, and this is a great opportunity to learn more about the different aspects of our two main water problems: water scarcity and contamination. This talk is open to the general public thanks to the support of the Jewish Community Center. Everyone with interest in learning more about these topics is cordially invited to join in.
The talk will be hosted through Zoom on Thursday, October 14, at 4 pm. Please register for this event by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
