Introducing the Waterlution Calgary Hub!

The Waterlution Calgary Hub works to develop and nurture inspired communities of water action by hosting year-round capacity-building opportunities. Regular gatherings bring together water experts, stakeholders and the interested public to explore pertinent issues and creative solutions to regional water management questions. These innovative social events aim to inspire guests, while weaving knowledge on a relevant topic, provoking dialogue and facilitating action items. Each event is focused on a specific water theme, stimulated by featured “provocateurs” – leading mentors with insight to share.

Waterlution thanks its supporters for this pilot project: The RBC Blue Water Project, The Calgary Foundation, Alberta Ecotrust, and Nexen for their generous support of the Waterlution Calgary Hub.

* Call for Artists: if you are interested in offering your artistic skill or talent in the theme of water at one of our events, then please contact us.
