Awash in Water: Understanding Indiana’s Water Systems

February 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CST

Krista Bailey headshot“How can poetry help preserve our water system?” From rain and snow to streams, rivers, lakes, and ground water, Indiana is awash in water. It makes up most of the human body and is a precious natural resource. To sustainably use, preserve, and enjoy it requires a systems approach that includes health, culture, ecosystems, and economies. Water departments bring it to us and clean it up when we are done with it—which is a lot—but is it enough?

Join Indiana University South Bend’s Director of the Center for a Sustainable Future Krista Bailey for a special, interactive workshop. Share stories and gain new perspectives on how we can all take better care of Indiana’s water ways. Learn how poetry, science, health, and urban planning approaches combine to provide a deep dive into what it will take to value and preserve our water system. Valuable insights from the environmental humanities that will be offered include insights and inspiration from nature poetry and art, prose, science, and how we plan and shape our increasingly urbanized way of life.

Please RSVP below to reserve your spot. A link to join the Zoom will be emailed prior to the event. This webinar will also be live streamed via Facebook.
