We highly recommend listening to the discussion starting at 1:30:30. Mansplaining at its best: “What I would suggest for the women […] just to step up”. We are currently writing a detailed commentary on this discussion which will (hopefully) be published soon.

Launch of the new Network of Socio-Hydrogeology at IAH 2019
Movie premiere and lecture in May 2019 in Berlin
Water as an everyday challenge – A story of women empowerment in peri-urban slums in India. An interdisciplinary documentary project and an educational musical. The transdisciplinary cooperation between freelance filmmaker Katalin Ambrus and hydrogeologist Theresa Frommen from Freie Universität Berlin resulted in two films about a participatory and interdisciplinary hydrogeological project in India between 2016 and 2019. The project involved the development of a participatory groundwater management together with local women groups from low-income areas in close cooperation with the local organization Mahila Housing SEWA Trust.
On Tuesday, 28th of May 2019, the premiere of the films took place at the ACUD Kunsthaus in Berlin. After a welcome note by Prof. Dr. Michael Schneider (FU Berlin), Dr. Viviana Re from the University of Pisa gave a lecture on socio-hydrogeology, a topic she has been researching for years and which is becoming increasingly important within hydrogeology. Before the premiere started, a small panel discussion shed light on how film can serve as a bridge builder between science and society.
Session at IAH 2018
At the 45th IAH congress in Daejeon, South Korea, Viviana and Theresa chaired a session on “Socio-hydrogeology for groundwater development in low-income countries (IAH-BGID special session)”. With contributions from five countries around the world and a total of eight presentations we had a diverse set of case-studies and approaches. This small but intense session was a great opportunity for in-depth discussion about the new sub-discipline of Socio-Hydrogeology.
