The Urgency of Water: Women, Climate, and Sustaining the World

March 22, 2022 is World Water Day and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act of 1972.

As the capstone signature event of the Barnard Year of Science, we will present a half day of workshops and lecture-style opportunities for Barnard students as well as invited students from area high schools. Alumnae, parents, trustees, and other community members may attend virtually. Register now!

SCHEDULE

Getting Circular Lecture | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM The Event Oval, The Diana Center
Associate Professor of Professional Practice in the Department of Theatre Sandra Goldmark is leading the charge to strengthen Barnard’s approach to sustainability and consumption—a foundational approach to taking better care of the resources that sustain us all. As part of Barnard’s World Water Day celebration, Professor Goldmark will talk about her book, Fixation: How to Have Stuff Without Breaking the Planet; her social enterprise Fixup; Barnard’s Circular Campus; and reducing waste and emissions while supporting equity and community resilience. This is what it means to cultivate circularity. Come join this empowering discussion and develop your own plan to go circular.

Environmental Storytelling for Stormy Times | 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM (CURRENT BARNARD/COLUMBIA STUDENTS ONLY) The Event Oval, The Diana Center
Workshop with Environmental Journalist and Author Cynthia Barnett
From profound species losses to climate change, it’s never been more crucial to help people understand what’s happening to the Earth and show them why they should care. This special workshop will introduce students to careers in environmental journalism and communications–and to the skill sets needed to tell scientific stories with clarity, wonder and shared humanity.

The Groundwater that Sustains Us 1:30 p.m. The Ella Weed Room
Groundwater is a major source of drinking water and irrigation, especially in dry regions. However, this essential resource is threatened by climate change, overuse, and contamination. Using small plexiglass tanks filled with sand, Barnard Professor of Environmental Science Martin Stute will demonstrate how groundwater flows and in an interactive way.

Testing the Waters Lecture | 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM | The Event Oval, The Diana Center
A year after COVID-19 became a national emergency, a campus-run project to monitor coronavirus in wastewater became part of a multi-pronged effort to keep the community safe during the pandemic. Professors JJ Miranda and Brian Mailloux along with staff and students developed a sampling and analysis protocol. As part of our daylong celebration of World Water Day, join the team as they present a lecture describing this important research and share details of all the results from around campus and their implication for society as a whole.

Activism: An Intersectional + Intergenerational Opportunity | 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM | The Event Oval, The Diana Center
Led by student activist Delaney Michaelson, the student panel will be the lead-up event and will complement the World Water Day talk between President Beilock and Cynthia Barnett to emphasize the intersectionality of the climate crisis with other causes. The panel will also demonstrate the importance of implementing immediate action on both an individual and institutional level. The engaging conversation will feature students from across both Barnard and Columbia to highlight the inclusive and collaborative nature of addressing climate change.

The Urgency of Water: Women, Climate, and Sustaining the World | 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM | The Event Oval, The Diana Center
The event will feature a conversation between Barnard President Sian Beilock and environmental journalist and author Cynthia Barnett, who has covered water and climate change around the world. They will discuss the urgency of water—the wellspring at the center of our survival—and the continuing crises of access and pollution. The talk will emphasize the ways water and women are bound—historically and powerfully—driving the life force of every society and every human being. Water is at the center of many climate-related crises, from drought that triggers wildfires to the existential threat of rising seas. The session will also examine how we might consider water a unifying force to bring us together to meet this climate emergency.
