Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

March 29: Freshwater and Foreign Policy: New Challenges

Indiana Council on World Affairs, Great Decisions Series featuring Bob Reardon, Indiana Council on World Affairs; and John Clark, Sagamore Institute

When: Tuesday, March 29 7:00-9:00 PM

Where: Butler University, Pharmacy Building

The day I am writing this, March 22, is World Water Day. Two factors are inescapably true about world water: we don't have enough freshwater, and struggling for it will probably be a main source of international conflicts in the 21st century. According to the UN, 1.1 billion lack adequate access to freshwater, 2.4 billion lack access to adequate sanitation, leading to 3 million preventable deaths every year. In a few decades the wars in the Middle East may not be fought over oil or religion but rather for water. It's a very important topic.

No RSVP required. Non-students who haven’t attended previous sessions of the ICWA’s Great Decisions should pay $2.
