EcoPeace Middle East and the Porter School of Environmental Studies of the Tel Aviv University, held the first screening in Israel of “Last Call at the Oasis”, a new film by the producers of “An Inconvenient Truth”, about the worldwide water crisis.
The screening was held on February 20th, at 14:00, in the Hall of Justice (“Kes HaMishpat”), Trubovich Building of the Tel-Aviv University.
Pollution, overconsumption, and climate change are threatening communities worldwide with water shortages. The film highlights the work of Professor James S. Famiglietti from the University of California with the last 15 minutes of the film focusing on the Jordan River and water crises in the Middle East.
A 30 minute panel discussion on water issues – asking the question – ‘Is there a crisis in water or in water management?’ was held prior to the film’s screening. Professor Famiglietti, Director of UC Center for Hydrologic Model, Dr. David Schorr, Department of Law, Tel Aviv University and Gidon Bromberg, EcoPeace Israeli Director participated in the panel discussion, moderated by Prof. Pinhas Alpert, Head of the Porter School of Environmental Studies, Tel Aviv University.
