marc yaggiMarc Yaggi is the Executive Director of Waterkeeper Alliance which provides a way for communities to stand up for their right to clean water and for the wise and equitable use of water resources, both locally and globally.

Marc's will enlighten us on this topic: "From the Hudson to the Tigris: How local Hudson River Activists spawned an international movement to make the world's waters swimmable, drinkable, and fishable".

Before joining Waterkeeper Alliance, Marc Yaggi was a Senior Attorney and Watershed Program Director for New York's Riverkeeper, Inc., where he worked to protect the 2,000-square mile watershed that serves as New York City's drinking water supply.  Come join the conversation around  the importance of local environmental activism, current issues facing us today and how fishermen on the Hudson "sparked" a global movement.
