Description

A webinar to inform and inspire your organization and staff to reconsider their use of and philosophy about water. World Water Day, annually on March 22, and the season of Lent provides an opportunity for those working in Catholic health care to consider how personal behavior and organizational processes and culture around water can create positive impact felt around the world.

An Unfortunate Fact

Health care organizations are consistently among the top water users in their communities — at a time when the EPA reports at least 36 states are anticipating local, regional or statewide water shortages by 2013 (even under non-drought conditions) and the cost of water is rising; over the past five years, U.S. municipal water rates have increased by an average of 27 percent. Our water use cannot be viewed in isolation because the use of water is the U.S. has a ripple effect on our global neighbors – especially low-resource countries.

Our Call

Catholic social teaching tells us that water is not a commodity to be bought and sold, but instead, a human right—the most necessary of God’s given resources. Catholic health organizations are called to steward resources wisely, promote and defend human dignity, promote the common good and act on behalf of justice—all things tied to the commoditization of water. We have a mission imperative to address water issues here and overseas.

During this one hour event, the presenters provided the ethical and moral case for wise water stewardship as well as initiatives making a difference today in health care to best steward this precious resource.


Presenters: Janet Howard, Director, Facility Engagement, Practice Greenhealth and Director, Content and Outreach, Healthier Hospitals Initiative; and Christiana Z. Peppard, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Theology, Science and Ethics, Department of Theology, Fordham University.

This is a recording of the webinar held on Feb. 6, 2014.

Run time: 60 minutes

System Requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 or above
  • Pentium IV - GHZ Processor
  • 256 MB RAM
