Water in the West: Exploring Untapped Solutions, Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium

The Stegner Center’s 22nd Annual Symposium, to be held March 23 to 24, 2017, will focus on “Water in the West: Untapped Solutions.” The symposium will address how the twin drivers of climate disruption and demographic change are likely to impact water availability in the West over the next 50 years. With these challenges as a backdrop, the Stegner Center’s solution-oriented symposium will focus on practical solutions to problems. Specifically, the Symposium will address four sets of issues: changing law—legal innovations to address these issues; changing science and the role of technology in improving data-driven water resource planning and management; changing infrastructure and new approaches like recycling wastewater; and changing behaviors—creating incentives that bring about the changes needed to respond to a dynamic world. The symposium will be interdisciplinary in nature and include speakers from the physical, biological and social sciences, academia, government, industry, public interest organizations, and the legal profession.

Raising Our Babies: The Most Important Job in the World

Babies’ brains develop at an astonishing speed, with 700 new connections every second! This rapid development enables them to adjust to a wide range of environments, but also makes them vulnerable to experiences like stress. Knowing that early experiences get “under the skin,” how can we optimize infant care, so that babies born today will reach their full potential tomorrow? What does science say about how optimal care — by parents and professional caregivers — can be supported? Please join us for a screening of an episode from the PBS series “The Raising of America” and a panel discussion, moderated by KUTV Anchor Mary Nickles, with the following U faculty: Elisabeth Conradt, assistant professor, psychology; Cathleen Zick, associate dean, College of Social and Behavioral Science; Russ Isabella, associate professor, Family and Consumer Studies; and Lee Raby, assistant professor, psychology.

2017 NHMU Lecture Series: Food

Food has the power to optimize good health and prolong life or make us susceptible to disease and illness. How we provide enough safe, nutritious food to feed the planet’s seven billion people in a way that is both economically and environmentally sustainable may be the question of our time. 
How can technology alter the way we grow food in our cities? What has changed in the ten years since the publication of Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma? How does the health of bees impact food production? And, what can we learn from the way people around the world approach food? Please join us as we hear from four preeminent minds in the world of food production who will explore what’s on our plates, how it gets there, who’s at the table, and who’s missing.
The March 23rd lecture is Bees, Essential Keystones Suporting Our Food: Are they in Danger: with Diana Cox-Foster
