- What: Isn't it ironic that local food can cost more than imported food? Do we know how much virtual water is embedded in our food? How much of it gets accounted for? How does Canada rate on the scale of virtual water trade? Where in the world are people getting the most impacted? How can my consumption habits and buying local make a difference?
- Cost: $15 at door
...for dining with Toronto's finest and consuming Ontario's local products
Admission with registration. Space is limited!
- Healthy, tasty, locally cooked hot buffet, yummy desert, and delicious water- some virtual- all to inspire our dialogue!
Introducing the Waterlution Toronto Hub!
The Waterlution Toronto 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 and international 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 theme, stimulated by featured “provocateurs” – leading mentors with insight to share.
Next Hub event:

SIGN UP NOW:
"CSR for the Bluer Good: Are We Moving Fast Enough Towards a Sustainable Society?"
The Waterlution Toronto Hub was made possible thanks to the support of the Trillium Foundation and the RBC Blue Water Project.
When & Where
The Waterlution Toronto Hub
Launched in November 2011, The Waterlution Toronto Hub continues to connect a vibrant and inspired community of water stewards in Toronto, by hosting space for capacity-building opportunities and meaningful multi-stakeholder dialogue.
The Waterlution Toronto Hub provides a regular gathering space to bring together water practitioners, stakeholders and the interested public to co-creatively explore questions of local, regional and international relevance. Hub events are intrinsically dialogue and participant focused, interactive and comfortably casual. Each event is stimulated by featured “provocateurs” – leading mentors with insight to share.
The purpose is to inspire, while weaving knowledge on a relevant topic, provoking dialogue, developing collaborative teamwork skills, bridging silos and facilitating action where possible. We employ an economy of generosity– everyone shares their ideas, questions, expertise, knowledge, stories and feedback as a gift.
