6 PM Business & Buffet
6:30 Lecture & Discussion


Rick Allen, former Waco City Council member and community activist, will address Waco Friends of Peace with a lecture entitled “Waco and Its Water.”  Mr. Allen will be assisted by Wiley Stem, Assistant City Manager.

Conservation is one of the important strategies we must employ if we are to survive the most catastrophic effects of anthropogenic climate disruption.  Although our major focus is reducing CO2 emissions and our carbon footprints in hopes of preserving a livable biosphere, adequate fresh water is also a necessity for the survival of our species.  The World Bank has projected that by 2025 two-thirds of the global population will face a shortage of fresh drinking water.  The rich nations of the world waste large volumes of water, while many developing nations are struggling to provide enough water for their people.


The Friends of Peace are thus honored to have Rick Allen speak on the very timely topic of water conservation and sustainability.  With Mr. Allen’s local experience in this field, the meeting will be a great educational event.
