The Water Dissensus – A Water Alternatives Forum


"How could anything non-controversial be of intellectual interest to grown-ups?" (Edward Abbey)

Existing dissensus, or antagonistic values and points of view, can be turned into a learning opportunity for the benefit of all and give way to reasoned debates that have the potential both to further understanding of complex water issues and to generate new ideas.
