CSUN Water Day

March 11, 2015

Good Afternoon All,

The Institute for Sustainability is hosting our annual CSUN Water Day event on Wednesday, March 11 (in honor of ‘World Water Day’) from 9:30 am – 1:45 pm in the University Student Union, Northridge Center. There will be three separate sessions (shown below) to coincide with class times.

9:30-10:45am session- Dr. Amalie Orme, a professor in the Geography department, will discuss the past, present, and future state of water in California.

11:00-12:15pm session- Anna Cummins, executive director, The 5 Gyres Institute, will give an overview of plastics in the oceanic gyres, their expeditions, research, and solutions

12:30-1:45pm session- Documentary screening of Cadillac Desert: Mulholland’s Dream, about the history of the water system in CA.

Come alone or bring your whole class! If you plan to bring a class to one of the sessions, please respond with the time you will be attending, how many students you expect to be there, and if you will need sign in sheets available. If your class does not coincide with one of the class sessions, but you would like to offer extra credit for students to attend, we can have sign in sheets available for that as well.

We also need a few volunteers to help out with Water Day! We have 4 shifts available: 9-10:30 am, 10:30-12 pm, 12-1:30 pm, and 1:30-2:30 pm. Check our Moodle page for more information and to sign up to volunteer.

We hope to see you all there!
