Meeting purpose and aims:

The second Global Water Futures (GWF) Annual Science Meeting is open to all members and affiliates of the GWF Program and its extended community of partners, as well as all who wish to be involved with GWF. This meeting will bring together the entire program for the second time, and will include a number of exciting, informative, and unique events and activities meant to review and better link together GWF’s technical and scientific advancements, whilst promoting further development and training of early career researchers, Indigenization of GWF, and engaging with partners and stakeholders.

The meeting will include the following:

  • Plenary sessions featuring high level talks by leading scientists on key issues relevant to GWF, as well as highlights of some of the research accomplishments from the GWF Program.
  • Parallel thematic oral sessions and poster presentations on Climate and Hydrology, Human dimensions and Hydro-economics and Ecosystems and Water Quality to showcase the remarkable range and quality of research being done across GWF, and to foster collaboration, synthesis and user engagement through focused discussions.
  • Local Indigenous cultural learning with a half-day event at Wanuskewin Heritage Park near Saskatoon. The group will participate in a number of different cultural learning activities to enhance knowledge of the history and culture of the Indigenous Peoples of the region.
  • A public event to explore relevant and important water issues faced in the Canadian Prairies and what GWF is doing in response to the challenges. This will take place the evening of May 14, 2019.
  • Professional development opportunities and workshops to build skills, strengthen communication abilities, and enhance collaboration and network building across GWF and beyond. These will be organized by the GWF Young Professionals and the Knowledge Mobilization and Communications Teams, and will take place on May 14, 2019.
