Water for Chocolate - becoming a food and water literate consumer
A public lecture by Professor Anas Ghadouani, Head, Aquatic Ecology and Ecosystems Studies and Programme Chair, Environmental Engineering, The University of Western Australia.
Do you think you’re water literate? More than 80% of Australians know little about the most important thing keeping them alive. Where do you think you use the most water? Washing? Flushing? Watering the garden? Wrong – and Professor Anas Ghadouani, a passionate and self-confessed water geek, has some surprising news for you. But if you love chocolate he has some not-so-great news too. Anas is passionate about all aspects of water engineering and management. With more than 20 years of experience, which has taken him all over the world while researching water in a wide and diverse range of environments, Anas has developed a unique, integrated and solution-focused approach for the study of water issues. In this public lecture Anas will discuss ways to reduce your water footprint and close the loop on the water cycle at a local level.
Anas Ghadouani is currently a Professor of Environmental Engineering at The University of Western Australia where he leads a very successful research group (Aquatic Ecology and Ecosystem Studies) focused on the study of a range of topics in water resources (water and wastewater), ecological engineering and environmental engineering, with an emphasis on the development of innovative technologies. Anas was appointed Programme Chair for Environmental Engineering in 2017. Anas has more than twenty years of research and teaching experience in the water area and has led numerous large scale multidisciplinary projects nationally and internationally. Anas is a founding member and past Executive Director of the $120M Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) established in 2012 (2012-2021). This role includes operation and scientific leadership in this large multidisciplinary research centre, the coordination of the CRCWSC activities within UWA, and the management of relationships with Western Australian CRC industry partners.
