Come learn about AguaClara! AguaClara is a program borne in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering nearly a decade ago. To date 9 water treatment plants have been installed in rural Honduras and 3 water filtration plants in rural India. These technologies provide safe, clean water to nearly 50,000 people living in the world’s poorest communities.
Almost 1 billion people in the world lack access to clean water. Cornell, in partnership with AguaClara LLC, the social enterprise established to deploy these treatment technologies, aim to bring low-cost, high-tech, sustainable solutions to communities in need.
Program director, Dr. Monroe Weber-Shirk, Senior Lecturer at Cornell, will visit us in south Florida along with other Cornell graduates who are involved in the program, and members of the AguaClara Advisory Board. Long time AguaClara supporters, Ken Brown ’74 and his wife, Elizabeth Sanjuan will host a reception at their art gallery.
A short program will take place including a video presentation.
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
