The WSP's David Brooks Receives Honorary Doctorate
The POLIS Water Sustainability Project team is pleased to congratulate David B. Brooks, WSP Water Soft Path Director, who received an honorary doctor of environmental studies from the University of Waterloo on June 13th.
As recognized by the University, David's "passionate devotion to his vision of humans living in a sustainable relationship with the planet has been exemplified throughout his professional life."
David addressed the spring convocation of the Faculties of Applied Health Sciences and Environment stating,
"What we need is not more discussion about sustainable development but more experimentation with it. We must try different development strategies for particular times, particular places and particular peoples. Some strategies will get us closer; others will turn out to be ineffective or inequitable. But the experiments must continue until each community finds a path that works economically, ecologically and politically."
