A note from the co-directors
As 2020 comes to a close, the One World One Water (OWOW) Center is grateful for the silver linings. In our case, it’s fitting that this expression of finding something positive from an otherwise negative situation was inspired by water (every cloud has a silver lining).
Perhaps the biggest silver lining for OWOW was the launch of our TomTalks video series – by pivoting to engage students, faculty and the outside world online instead of in person, we’ve created a varied library of water stories that can reach audiences in Denver just as easily as in Egypt (see our recent episode on the damming of the Nile). Another silver lining has been the support of MSU Denver, and in particular from our new leader in Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Elizabeth Parmelee. She continues to embrace the mission of the OWOW Center and has provided strong leadership for our efforts within the MSU Denver community and beyond.
We hope you have found some silver linings as well in this challenging year. We look forward to continuing our conversations with you – online or in person – in 2021.
