Water

 

As the United Nation's 2015 deadline for achieving its Millennium Development Goals is upon us, there has been good progress on the human right to safe water, and Seattle University faculty are lending a hand. In May 2015, past CEJS Fellow Dr. Mike Marsolek worked with faculty from Kathmandu University to provide access to safe water in the wake of the devastating Nepal earthquake. In July 2015, CEJS Director Phillip Thompson and his team of students continued their  water projects in Thailand and in August, our CEJS partners from Haiti Tec provided access to safe drinking water for a school in Port au Prince. The CEJS also supports sustainable wastewater treatment projects in Nicaragua and Greywater testing at the Bullitt Center. If you would like to help support these and other CEJS projects, please click here.
