Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Commissioner Debra Shore will speak on “Water Justice or Water Just for Us? A Local Resource with Global Implications” at 7 p.m. on Sept. 16 at the Main Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Ave.

Residents of the Great Lakes region are the stewards of 20% of the world’s surface fresh water supply. Ms. Shore’s talk will explore what this means in the context of a growing worldwide demand for fresh water in this changing global climate. She will look at how Cook County government and residents are managing the challenges of climate change.

Some of the big questions Ms. Shore will address are “What do we need to do to prepare for the challenges that lie ahead? What is the role of government – local, state, and federal – and what responsibilities do we have as citizens and consumers? What threats face the Great Lakes and the Chicago area waterways, and how can we manage them?”

The event, sponsored by the Chicago Ethical Humanist Circle, is free and open to the public; more  event details may be found at
