Who says back to school is only for kids and teens? Whether you’re three years or 30 years out of college, it’s still fun to learn something new. That’s why I was excited to hear that York College’s Sustainability and Environmental Studies minor announced its 2013-14 schedule of sustainability events.
The documentary focuses on the global water crisis, “illuminating the vital role water plays in our lives, exposing the defects in the current system and depicting communities already struggling with its ill-effects,” according to the film’s website.
The film, like all sustainability events this academic year, begins at 7 p.m. It will be shown in Humanities Room 218 on campus, 441 Country Club Road, Spring Garden Township.
