Engaging Our Great Waters - Connecting Water & Young Canadians Vancouver

Sat Apr 8, 2017, Vancouver, BC

What would happen if our streets and public spaces became a place for conversations around our water? What if young Canadians, the leaders of tomorrow, led this movement?

The Great Waters Challenge wants to find out!

We are launching "Engaging Our Great Waters - Connecting Water & Young Canadians" - 16 workshops hosted across the country, open to the public (young Canadians under 30) and players of the Great Waters Challenge. From Vancouver to St. John's, and Gjoa Haven to Quebec City, this #Canada150 initiative offers young Canadians the opportunity to connect to water and make visible how water has shaped their identity and that of their community.

Why get involved in the one in your city or town?
· Meet a diverse group of young Canadians in your community
· Be inspired by a local expert on water facts
· Co-create with an artist on a public intervention
· Take charge, plan and execute a group-led "action day", to educate and animate change in your community!

Each workshop runs for the duration of one day, from 10 am - 5pm. Lunch is provided!
