CEREO January 2021

Water Resources Club

The Water Resources Club at Washington State University is a community of students and advisers committed to engagement with local and regional water issues.  We cherish and celebrate clean and bountiful water for humans and wildlife, alike.

We are from many backgrounds: engineering, environmental science, art, cultural and spiritual wisdom, policy, and economics. Join our club to add your voice today.

We at the Water Resources Club are passionate about engaging in education and projects that improve the quality and abundance of water for all living things. We are interested in many facets of water issues: from the science and engineering of watersheds and water systems, to management and policy of water resources, to the regional cultural and spiritual aspects of water. Contact us to suggest a project for our involvement or issues around which we can help spread awareness, or join our club to add your skills and vision.

2021 PNW Water Research Symposium

The Pacific Northwest Water Research Symposium, hosted by the Oregon State University Hydrophiles, is a two-day, student-centric conference highlighting outstanding student research in the fields of water resources science, engineering, and policy. This year the conference will be held virtually April 12-13th, 2021. The conference aims to connect individuals, build skills, and share knowledge between students, university faculty, staff, and professionals. This symposium brings students from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and beyond to present their proposed, ongoing, or completed research.

 

Current graduate and undergraduate students conducting freshwater-related research in any field (science, policy, engineering, etc.) are invited for presentations. This conference is open to anyone to attend. There is no cost to present or attend. The Symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for the exchange of ideas among students, university faculty, professionals working in water resources, and the surrounding community.

New Summer 2021 Research Experience for Undergraduates!

Washington State University has a new Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) and is recruiting students for our Summer 2021 program!   This REU builds on our existing Food-Energy-Water (FEW) research project and aims to help students explore the problems and possibilities of sustainable FEW management.  Grounded by our stakeholder network, this REU will focus on exploring different technological, policy, and management innovations that could help us cooperatively manage our food, energy, and water resources for a just and sustainable future.

The deadline to apply for this opportunity is February 15, 2021!   For more information about the program, see our website at: https://cereo.wsu.edu/reu-stakeholder-few-innovations/ or reach out to Dr. Julie Padowski (julie.padowski@wsu.edu) with questions.

Toxics in Puget Sound Workshop

9am-4:30pm on Friday, February 5th to hear updates about monitoring, research and emerging science from the Puget Sound.

The Stormwater Strategic Initiative Lead (SIL), part of the Puget Sound recovery community, is hosting this workshop.   Many thanks to our standing advisory team (SIAT) and planning team for their contributions. The workshop is designed to identify red flag monitoring for action oriented solutions/strategies.

The February 5th Workshop day will focus on science only and will address PCBs, PAHs, PBDEs and CECs, among other toxics.  We will be emphasizing emerging science and the discussion will address sources, pathways and impacts.

The February 26th workshop- Part II- will address some of the pressing issues associated with our Toxics in Fish Implementation Strategy while providing broader context regarding prevention, human health and a wide range of contaminants and toxics.

Zoom link will be sent upon registration. The final agenda will be sent before the event.

Register here.

Thank you to our funder, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Inaugural WA Climate Assembly Meeting

Online: youtu.be
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 6 PM PST – 8 PM PST
Price: Free · Duration: 2 hr
Public Anyone on or off Facebook
We are calling communities throughout Washington State to tune into the conversation of climate pollution at Washington State’s inaugural Climate Assembly. Join us LIVE to listen to the beginning stages of the Assembly process, which aims to find potential solutions for climate mitigation that will be recommended to the State Legislature.
After the Inaugural Assembly meeting, Assembly members will attend a series of learning sessions where they hear from climate change experts and interested parties on a variety of topics.
In February, Assembly members will deliberate on all that they’ve learned and will then vote on a set of recommendations that they will present to decision makers.
The question that the assembly (and presenters) will be addressing is: How can Washington State equitably design and implement climate mitigation strategies while strengthening communities disproportionately impacted by climate change across the State?
