The Waterlution Hub Network
in conjunction with Verge Permaculture, presents:
Harvesting Our Future:
Water, Permaculture & Systemic Change
With Guest Provocateur
Author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond
with Karen Kun, co-founder and director of Waterlution
and Calgary Poet Laureate
Kris Demeanor, with a water-related musical performance
How do we create systemic change toward a better future? What are the water costs of energy and the energy costs of water? “Watergy” is Brad Lancaster’s term for the water-energy nexus. As an expert on rainwater harvesting, Brad sparks conversation on how to address systemic change around water and energy through a permaculture or ecological design system lens. Join us for an interactive evening of dialogue on how much water and energy is required in a water-scarce landscape whether in gardens, indoor plumbing, municipal infrastructure or industry.
Find inspiration for action at Waterlution’s first Calgary Hub gathering in 2012-2013, explore cross-sector collaboration and discover opportunities with fellow professionals.

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.
