Presentation

Advancing Collaboration for Healthy Waters

The Our Living Waters Network has an ambitious goal – for all of Canada’s waters to be in good health by 2030 – a goal that no one of us can achieve on our own. Collaboration and innovation will be necessary to realize impact across the country. This session will explore the Our Living Waters Shared Measurement system – exploring how we can collectively track how each of us can contribute to a shared future where all waters are healthy and thriving. The session will explore key priorities for Alberta and opportunities to advance collaborative efforts to ensure all of Alberta’s waters are in good health.
