Event Details

Join Illinois Water Day as we take part in an international celebration of our world’s most precious resource, water! The theme for Illinois Water Day 2018 is “Water for Nature”.  

The proceedings will begin with an art and research showcase, illuminating the role of water in society and the problems that face us with works from students and community members.  The displays will be accompanied by activities which will provide experiential knowledge of three specific issues: invasive Asian Carp, the challenges faced by communities without readily accessible safe water, and the economics of bottled water versus tap water.  The evening will conclude with a TED-Talk session designed to further engage undergraduate students and inspire them to use their skills and abilities to help solve society’s looming water problems.  Food (light fare) and beverages will be served during the event. For more information about past IWD events, please visit our website at waterday.illinois.edu.

Present your Art and/or Research!

For the the first time, Illinois Water Day will be hosting a joint Open House celebrating the role that both science and art play in preserving our most precious resource: water. Join faculty, students, and community members from all walks of life at a free cocktail hour before our scheduled speakers present their work.
