    Name: Prescott Valley Public Library – New Event - Frank Talks – Water in Arizona: Sustainability, Supply and Demand
    Date: March 24, 2020
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MST
    Event Description:
    The Prescott Valley Public Library (7401 East Skoog Blvd.) and FRANK Talks presents ‘Water in Arizona: Sustainability, Supply and Demand’. Water is necessary for life, but as supply shrinks, choices must be made about who is given access to water and who isn’t. Communities across Arizona are going dry. This means that some residents may have no choice except to move. How do we decide who gets access to water, and who does not? Should the needs of the many be placed above the needs of the few? How do we address the social and moral issues raised by competition for scarce resources, locally, regionally and nationwide? Join us for a discussion about water in Arizona, sustainability and the supply/demand imbalance. Paul Hirt is a Professor of History, Senior Sustainability Scholar, and member of the public history faculty at Arizona State University. FRANK Talks are interactive conversations on ideas that matter. Attendees discuss issues of local and national importance in local libraries at a 75-minute program. FRANK Talks encourage participants to weigh facts, provide the opportunity to put them in context, and consider different points of view. The goal of FRANK Talks is to inspire people to practice the skills of citizenship – to listen respectfully and engage thoughtfully with one another on important issues that affect our communities. Topics can include education, immigration, religion, civil rights, and more. This is a free event. No Registration is required.
