Engineers Without Borders

Day dedicated to exploring issues related to water management

The campus chapters of UNICEF and Engineers Without Borders invite the UWindsor community to consider the relationship between food security and access to fresh water during their observance of World Water Day in the CAW Student Centre on Thursday, March 22.

The student groups will set up a booth with information on everything from how much water is used to grow crops to the ways that growing competition for scarce resources can affect food security. The student engineers will have on hand a treadle pump, which uses human power to irrigate fields.
