Pittsburgh has been selected as the North American host city by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to join World Environment Day 2010. A whole raft of events leading up to WED on June 5th will focus on the main themes of water and biodiversity; the Water Matters! Global Water Conference is the keystone event. Citizens, students, business owners, watershed groups, and community leaders from across the region and North America will gather to be part of a remarkable, eye-opening exploration of the ways in which water matters. The conference will include an exhibit area highlighting the regions leading water innovators, problem solvers, and technologies, with a focus on hands-on activities and displays.
All day at the David Lawrence Convention Center downtwon. Cost to attend is $25. For more information and to register, go to http://www.pittsburghwed.com/watermatters
