Bridging efforts in water research, governance, and action since 2018!
Seeking Partner Organizations and Interns!
The Pittsburgh Water Collaboratory is once again sponsoring internships for undergraduate students to work on projects related to regional water sustainability with a community partner. We are currently seeking interns and partner organizations. This internship is a great opportunity for students to “get their feet wet” with independent research while helping local water organizations answer important research questions. Internship includes a $5,000 stipend. Applications are due March 1st. View the full description here. More information is available on our website.

This year, the Collaboratory is participating in the Pitt Day of Giving! Save the date for February 23. Funds raised will support students tackling Pittsburgh regional water challenges using community-engaged approaches. Please consider supporting the collaboratory and other sustainability groups at Pitt! 
Book Launch: The Water Defenders: How Ordinary People Saved a Country from Corporate Greed by Robin Broad and John Cavanagh
Friday March 5, 12:00-1:30PM Via Zoom
Water is life. Countless communities across the world, from Flint, Michigan to the Standing Rock Reservation to the Gualcarque River in Honduras, have used this phrase as a rallying cry against powerful corporations that value profits over the environment and the health of local communities. In 2002, a small group of citizens in El Salvador joined this global community of water defenders when representatives from multinational mining company Pac Rim appeared in their home province of Cabañas. This ignited a people’s fight against corporate power that would last for over a decade. In The Water Defenders: How Ordinary People Saved A Country from Corporate GreedRobin Broad and John Cavanagh tell the harrowing, inspiring saga of El Salvador’s fight –and historic victory –to save their water, and their communities, from Big Gold. Their book generates lessons about how those concerned with environmental justice, public health, and democracy can work to transform the political structures that have impoverished and disenfranchised communities. Register to attend
