Colorado State University (CSU) has a rich legacy in international water research, education and projects. The Global Water Initiative (GWI) has emerged in response to the recent heightened awareness of the global water crisis. GWI aims to (1) create new opportunities for students in the international water arena and (2) to bring Colorado water expertise to countries facing critical water issues such as water scarcity, decreasing water quality, flooding, and lack of access to potable water and sanitation.
CSU Art Professors Phil Risbeck and Jason Frazier assigned their students the task of communicating global water challenges through their artwork in the Global Water Colloquium in March of 2008 Art Poster Competition. These posters are a small selection from the entries submitted.
