Image for Water DayWater Day

11:00 am - 9:00 pm - USU Northridge Center
http://www.csun.edu/sustainability

The Institute for Sustainability is hosting its annual Water Day event on Wednesday March 20th in the USU Northridge Center (World Water Day- the official UN-designated day dedicated to water issues is March 22nd) from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. There are two separate sessions (to coincide with class times), from 11:00 - 12:15pm and from 12:30 - 1:45pm.

In the first session, you will have the opportunity to see if you can taste the difference between bottled versus tap water. We will also show (part of) the documentary "Tapped" which deals with the issues of bottled water and privatization of water, and have a facilitated discussion of issues surrounding bottled water including the results of the taste test.

In the second session we will discuss water for the developing world and will be hosting a presentation by the Thirst Project (www.thirstproject.org). Is the water safe to drink? Not for 1 billion people! What can YOU do? The Thirst Project raised $2.6 million and have given 100,000 access to clean water. Thirst Project was started by students just like YOU!

At 7pm in the USU Theatre, we will be co-hosting a film screening of "Over Troubled Waters" with Food and Water Watch. An engaging discussion with experts will follow the film. Find out about the state of out water and what you can do. The fate of California's water is in your hands!

Please come and invite your students to join us for this educational event.

Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.
