This is one the launch events of the University of Exeter’s first ever Global Conversation, a programme of lectures taking place around the globe, hosted by some of Exeter's pioneering academics. The purpose of the Global Conversation is to showcase some of Exeter's exciting developments in world-leading research which is relevant to both a local and international audience.

The talk will explore the theme of “Water in Asia: Threats and opportunities for Health and Wellbeing”. This event offers two fascinating presentations from world-leading academics on the topic of water. The first presentation will be “Water and World Security: A Need for Innovation and Collaboration in an Interconnected World." Professor Dragan Savic will talk about the Water-Food-Energy Nexus and will discuss implications for national security aided by case studies from around the world. In a second presentation, “Environment, Human Health and Water," Professor Mike Depledge will look at how environmental change impacts the health and wellbeing of humans, specifically examining “The Blue Gym”; how blue spaces can be used to promote health.

The talk will be followed by a questions and answers session for the panel, and this will be followed by an opportunity for everyone to network over drinks and canapés. The Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor Sir Steve Smith will be attending this event and you will have the opportunity to hear the latest news from the University of Exeter.
