E-BOOK 'Water Views: Caring and Daring
Waterwheel World Water Day Symposium 2014 ­ 3WDS14'

Science, Art, Ecology, Community and Youth
respond to the theme: ³Water Views: Caring and Daring.²

An astonishing number and variety of entries ­ 125 articles & 540 pages ­
makes this book a rich collection of ongoing work internationally, often
with a local focus, on raising awareness and responding to water issues.

450 participants, from 34 countries across 5 continents, interacted with
audience ?live¹ on the Internet & in 18 physical venues or ?nodes¹,
through Waterwheel, an online platform dedicated to water. The symposium,
held 17-23 March 2014, also integrated youth & inter-generational dialogue
with the ³Voice of the Future² strand.
Transversal knowledge and multidisciplinarity across cultures and
languages shaped the content and structure of the e-book. The nine, richly
illustrated sections contain three types of entries, based on the
presentation given as part of the Symposium: ³Splash²­ project overview,
³Ripple²­ detailed project description, and ³Wave²­ peer-reviewed article
on original research.
