Climate change is altering rivers, lakes, and wetlands all over the planet, generating inequalities and discrimination that disproportionately affect women. Many women, driven by discontent, have become prominent voices in movements for the defense and protection of these ecosystems. Unfortunately, we often forget these women when we talk about climate change and water.
The exhibition Augmented Ecofeminisms: Climate, Water, Women (#MUAC) reflects on the interactions between climate change, freshwater ecosystems, and ecofeminism. Through a journey that combines augmented reality with scientific, artistic, and audiovisual material, the authors question the current management of environmental issues related to water and explore a possible future based on alternative perspectives, voices, and ideas to contemporary politics.

The inauguration of the exhibition will take place on October 5, 2023, at the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Girona, from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM. During the event, we will have the participation of the scientific and artistic team that has developed the project, who will be present to share more about this initiative. The event will feature welcoming remarks from Núria Bonada, the President of the Iberian Association of Limnology, and Anna Maria Pla, the Gender Equality Delegate of the University of Girona. During the break, a light refreshment will be offered to all attendees, and there will be an artistic performance related to the project.
