Global Dialogues: The Worsening Water Crisis - Santiago, Chile


Location: Virtual

Join NDI staff from Santiago, Chile and Notre Dame Environmental Engineering Professor Rob Nerenberg to discuss how population growth and climate change are increasing the need for more sustainable and energy-efficient water management technologies. The Nerenberg research group focuses on biological processes for water and wastewater treatment and reuse. Dr. Nerenberg's group uses advanced experimental tools, molecular tools, and modeling to understand and predict the behavior of biofilms.

Global Dialogues: The Worsening Water Crisis is a new, interactive series presented by Notre Dame International and ThinkND that highlights the University’s global reach through research, activism, and local impact around the globe as a further exploration of what connects us in our Care for Our Common Home.

During this series, we will learn about the global water crisis by connecting with partners around the world to study issues of water, including its accessibility, its impact on cities, and its importance to equity and food production.

Each week, we will travel the globe, from Mumbai to São Paulo, and showcase the impact of local research and fieldwork that is happening throughout the University’s network of programs, partnerships, and engagements with local people, organizations, and governments.

The Worsening Water Crisis will deliver a deep dive into local case studies that will be examined and discussed with an aim to connect, educate, inspire, and motivate people to come together to solve this global issue. It will offer an opportunity to engage with international communities and learn about the impact of climate change from Notre Dame’s expert faculty.
