What meaning does water give us? How has it touched our lives and traditions? Water’s irreplaceable value to all life on earth has been recognized within all global faith and spiritual traditions throughout history. To celebrate the arrival of spring, we will take the time to consider the place water holds in our own lives and our connections to each other, our communities, and the world.

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 Artist: 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.
* SAVE THE DATE for our NEXT EVENT *

When & Where
Waterlution inspires pattern-making and pattern-breaking change towards a healthy and sustainable relationship with water.
We develop dynamic communities of action by providing opportunities for leadership development and multi-stakeholder dialogue around local, regional and national water issues.
Waterlution Hubs are all about building robust communities of effective water leadership. Based in select cities across Canada, they are networks of water-focused change-makers who learn from one another and build each others’ capacity to make real change towards the sustainable management of water resources and watersheds in their communities.
