Dr. Ogendi to travel to Kenya for documentary shoot
Dr.George Ogendi, Environmental Geology, will travel to Kenya this month as part of a team that will shoot a documentary film based on Maude Barlow's book, "Blue Gold." The goal of the documentary film is to capture and expose to the world the plight of low income families in a developing country as they attempt to obtain water. As water becomes increasingly commodified and heavily priced by private water corporations, the poor in rural and urban communities have been denied access to this most basic and important resource. While in Kenya, Dr. Ogendi will also attend the World Social Forum in Nairobi from Jan. 20-25.
