Dr. Thomas Neeson, of the UW Department of Limnology, and Dr. Sebastian Martinuzzi, of the UW Agriculture School's Dept of Forestry and Wildlife, gave a presentation resonant with themes related to the United Nations 2013 International Year of Water Cooperation.
Excellent food from a variety of cultural traditions was served, and live music was provided by Daithi Wolfe, Clocks in Motion, and Joseph Elder.
This is the first time that UN Day has been marked with a reception on the UW campus, and the consensus was that the event was a great success. The event was co-sponsored by: UW-Madison Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies Program, UW International Student Services - Millennium Development Goals Awareness Project, Edgewood College Center for Global Education, and SERRV International.
