Some of the latest EU funded research on Solar Disinfection of Drinking Water in rural communities will be presented by Dr Eunice Ubomba-Jaswa, Researcher - CSIR Natural Resources and the Environment.

A bottled water tasting will be presented by John Weaver (also an overview of the industry, history, legislation and sales) - John as been involved with the bottled water industry since 1992 as an investigating Hydrogeologist - He has been the Chairman of SANBWA (SA Natural Bottled Water Association) since 1998. Come and taste the difference between a number of different bottled waters and enjoy a true Argentinian Braai afterwards (specially prepared by the Argentinean Association of SA).
