UTEP's One Water Cluster and Somos Agua Present
What is World Water Week?
World Water Day (WWD) has been celebrated by the UN every March 22, since 1993. This day recognizes the importance of freshwater for every human being and the planet that we inhabit. This year, UTEP’s Somos Agua/We Are Water — an artist-led collective within the interdisciplinary research group One Water Cluster — will host the second edition of World Water Week at UTEP from March 21-26, 2022. The events will be on and off campus, Covid19 permitting, including live interactive performances, symposia on water topics, and information stations.
The global WWD theme for 2022 is “Groundwater: Making the Invisible Visible.” This theme provides an opportunity to contemplate our impact on the health of our water systems and the importance of groundwater for the availability and access to safe water for ourselves and all the living relatives we share it with.
UTEP’s World Water Week activities are meant to inform, challenge and encourage action. We are inviting the UTEP community — academic units, student groups, and other organizations — and community groups and members to participate in this exciting week of activies.
Below, please find our event agenda and learn more about the importance of groundwater.
All World Water Week sessions at UTEP are free and open to the public.
