Celebration of the Biosand Water Filter - Call for local artists

Date: Oct 24, 2018

Deadline: Dec 6, 2018 - 5:30 pm

CAWST is hosting an event on December 6th at their office to celebrate the inventor of the Biosand Water Filter, a household water treatment technology that impacted millions of people.

David Manz invented the biosand filter in the early 1990s, co-founded CAWST in 2001, and made his invention freely available for humanitarian means. Thanks to him, millions of people around the world have clean water in their homes.

Dr. David Manz was inducted into the Alberta Order of Excellence in October of this year. This is the province’s highest honour a citizen can receive and it is an official part of the Canadian Honours System.

We would like to show case Biosand Filter inspired art at our event on December 6th.

If you are interested in contributing your creation, please contact Emilie Sanmartin at esanmartin@cawst.org

You will get a free ticket to the event as well as the opportunity to network with our guests.
