We hope you've had an amazing 2022! The OWOW Center has spent the year celebrating our 10 year anniversary through special collaborations, projects, and efforts to build water stewardship in Colorado. We are so grateful for your support and look forward to another 10 years!
A special congratulations to the Water Studies students graduating this semester!
Here are some highlights and news from the OWOW Center…
The OWOW Center in Italy!
The OWOW Center team just got back from a study abroad trip in Italy. Three professionals and one student joined us as we visited sites in Rome, Salerno, and a UNESCO World Heritage site in Paestum. On Thursday, November 24, we co-hosted a conference with Universita per Stranieri di Perugia focused on discussing the similarities, differences, and innovation around how a changing climate is impacting the Tiber River and the Colorado River. At the conference, we signed an MOU with Canale Emiliano Romagnolo, a major irrigation district, to pursue joint research and to continue to exchange knowledge.
We look forward to continuing our collaborations with our partners in Italy!
10 Year Anniversary Celebration
On November 17, the One World One Water Center hosted an anniversary party at Denver Botanic Gardens. Thanks to you and your generous contributions, the OWOW Center raised $11,779 this year to continue water education and stewardship. We're so grateful for the ongoing support from students, faculty, colleagues, and friends in the water community. We couldn't have come this far without you!
If you missed the party and would like to show your support of the OWOW Center through a gift, you can support anytime by visiting our donation page here.
