During the WATER exhibition season, KANEKO will host the Water for Food Institute’s ongoing series, Transdisciplinary Conversations.  In an effort to discover innovation through conversation and exchange of ideas, the talks will unite community members, faculty and students to discuss water-related issues. The conversations nurture discussion between individuals with varying viewpoints, challenge existing systems, and make cross-disciplinary connections that advance ideas in the world of water sustainability.

The Water for Food Institute
From its inception, the vision for the Water for Food Institute has been that of a non-traditional institute that would operate as a creative network with several constituent parts, strengthened by national and global partners including other universities, public sector institutions, private sector partners and NGOs. WFI’s institutional strategy is thus based on the concept of the institute as a ‘distributed institute,’ with a core group of staff and drawing on faculty across all four campuses and disciplines of the University as well as its network of partners and affiliated faculty at other institutions, benefiting from the advice of both internal and external advisory bodies, and governed by a Board of Directors.
