On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email UMDevents@umd.edu.


Thirsty Turtles UMD and Beyond the Classroom presents the documentary, "Water on the Table"

When: Tuesday, March 05, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Where: South Campus Commons, Building 1 : 1102
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

Water On The Table is a character-driven, social-issue documentary that explores Canada's relationship to its freshwater, arguably its most precious natural resource. The film asks the question: is water a commercial good like running shoes or Coca-Cola? Or, is water a human right like air?

Water On The Table features Maude Barlow, who is considered an "international water-warrior" for her crusade to have water declared a human right.  "Water must be declared a public trust and a human right that belongs to the people, the ecosystem and the future, and preserved for all time and practice in law. Clean water must be delivered as a public service, not a profitable commodity."

This film co-sponsored by Beyond the Classroom Living & Learning Program and Thirsty Turtles UMD https://www.facebook.com/ThirstyTurtlesUmd?fref=ts.
