Student-organized events, films, and presentations celebrate WATER at University of Minnesota Duluth and Lake Superior College
University of Minnesota Duluth and Lake Superior College are celebrating World Water Day during the week of March 21–24. A series of student-sponsored events, films, tabling, and panel discussions will help raise awareness about the importance of fresh water and of Lake Superior being a source for the area’s drinking water.
UMD students are hosting a #WaterFacts and #WorldWater social media competition to raise awareness and give away water-themed prizes. The students in the UMD chapter of the Minnesota Public Research Interest Group will table on Tuesday and Thursday with information about local water issues, giving away buttons, hosting a water-themed game, and encouraging students to pledge to avoid bottled water.
Lucky students at LSC can stop by to exchange any empty single-use plastic bottle for a free aluminum “Superior” bottle, and add to a “bottle chain display”.
