Eleven University of Pennsylvania Master of Environmental Studies students and one University of Richmond Law student are reporting live from the sixth World Water Forum in Marseille, France with the Oikos/Penn Student Reporter program. IGEL’s own Caroline D’Angelo is serving as Editor and coordinator of the group. The World Water Forum is the largest gathering of water professionals and ministers in the world; it meets every three years in different locations. Previous years have seen up to 25,000 attendees. Attendees and speakers include representatives from non-governmental organizations, government officials, small non-profits, businesses and academia. The students will be live blogging the conference and interviewing leading officials – check out studentreporter.org, follow them on Twitter @oikosreporter and like them on Facebook – Student Reporter.
