The WWF is run at a local level by the following offices...
Energy and water have always been closely linked, but shale gas exploration and water have a particularly intimate connection.
These questions and issues will be explored in the next WWF and SAfm DecisiveDebate on AM Live, where the motion will be ‘fracking threatens our water resources’.
Often the solution to deeply contentious issues lies simply in ‘reframing’ the conversation. This is exactly what the DecisiveDebates series aims to do – provide an opportunity for dynamic, outspoken experts to engage directly with a range of hot topics. Each team in the DecisiveDebates is given three chances to persuade the audience (both live in studio and tuned in) with opening, rebuttal and closing arguments.
The aim is to entertain and engage, and advance important issues in ways that make for compulsive listening. The audience, by way of voting, will determine the winning side.
