We're sharing the contest entries from our Show Us Your Research grad student photo competition.

This photo, entitled "Informal Education" was taken in La Montanita, Nicaragua. It is from Jordan Brubacher, Faculty of Health Sciences, who writes:

Last year I volunteered in a Nicaraguan community whose drinking water supply is degraded as a result of unsustainable agricultural practices. I helped develop a community-based watershed restoration plan that promotes biodiversity, water retention and purification, and crop productivity.

This photo is of two men enjoying the shade of a lonely tree while discussing what needs to be done. To me, it nicely portrays the importance of education through informal means, a process that I believe to be vital in solving many of the worlds greatest problems.

This experience inspired my current research involving drinking water and climate change.
