The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is excited to announce the debut of What’s in the Water?, a poster that uses illustration and infographics to break down the hydraulic fracturing (fracking) process and shows how it could impact the food and water supplies of New York City.
What’s in the Water? is the latest issue of Making Policy Public, a series of fold-out posters that use graphic design to explore and explain public policy.
Join CUP on Wednesday, February 13th, for a conversation with Barry Estabrook, an award-winning writer on issues of food safety and justice, and Al Appleton, a Senior Fellow at the Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design, on the risks fracking poses to the city’s food, health, and drinking water.
Attendees will also receive a free copy of the What’s in the Water? poster.
