任晓媛:水包容万物,但有没有难过?| 爱莲说第4期
提起饮用水,你脑海中的形象是什么样的? 清澈的?甘甜的?富含矿物营养的? 可你知不知道,在许多乡村中,水源受到各种各样的污染,而人们就喝着未经处理的水。有的受到地质影响,固体含量严重超标;有的受到工业农业排污或其它因素的影响,漂在水面的污染物肉眼可见。

污染水不能喝,桶装水喝不起,数据带你看农村饮用水困局
在河北省廊坊市大厂县北部,黑黄色的河水载着塑料袋和矿泉水瓶等垃圾缓缓流淌,几条支流绕过民房,注入鲍邱河,从东、西、北三面包围着夏垫村。2009年,多位村民因严重的水污染罹患癌症,夏垫村曾被媒体称为“癌症村”。 今年 8 月,关注农村饮用水的公益组织吾水(MyH2O)信息平台组织大学生志愿者前往 15 个省、24 个地级市的村庄进行水质调研,夏垫村是调研点之一。几位来自中国石油大学的学生走进村庄发现,十年后的鲍邱河,仍是一条散发着臭气的黑水河。村民路过河边纷纷掩住口鼻、加快脚步,住在附近的农户几乎不敢开窗,村里流浪的猫狗都不愿靠近河边。
The Critical Role of Water Mapping in Achieving Water Security
China is one of the largest countries in the world —a land full of wonders and advancements. The country hosts almost a fifth of the entire world population but when it comes to fresh water, it only holds 7% of it. Things are bad in Northern China where the population is high but water resources are low. While southern China has adequate lakes and ponds, they are not properly sanitized to be used as drinking water. All of these add up to China’s current situation where fresh sanitized drinking water is a luxury and a privilege. While there are numerous organizations willing to lend a helping hand, the lack of data and perception has been a big barrier to supplying clean water in all parts of the country. This is when MyH2O's journey begin.

Alumni Spotlight: Charlene Ren, Environmental Engineer
As a Tata Fellow from 2013-2015, Xiaoyuan “Charlene” Ren worked on a project treating wastewater in Indian paper mills while earning her Master’s degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering at MIT. Now she’s turning her attention to her native country of China. Charlene has founded an NGO, MyH2O, that is trying to extend access to clean water in China by creating and training a youth-led water testing network. For this work she’s been named a 2016 Echoing Green Global Fellow. A “solution connector,” Charlene tells us more about her venture and life after the Tata Center.
Making water more safe for all
The Web portal, called MyH2O (myh2o.org), is one of the first online crowdsourcing platforms in China aiming to promote risk awareness, citizen activism and governmental response through independent reports on water quality. The team is made up of Chinese students studying at such American universities as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Columbia University, and MBA students at the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in Beijing.
