Water for the Americas Tour Stop

Feb 11, 2014, 7:30am - 5:00pm


The humanitarian initiative Water for The Americas will be at The Ohio State University on Feb. 11, 2014 with a rally and speakers. Water for the Americas is a 6-month whistlestop tour traveling 15,000 miles from Boston to Rio during winter-summer 2014 for the purpose of raising awareness of the global water crisis.

The day's festivities will include keynote speakers with perspectives on water sustainability, as well as the opportunity to sign the group's signature van. The van was purchased with crowd-sourced funds and serves as a symbol of all of the people who are committed to water as a basic human right.
