Description

Please join the EWG on Tuesday, February 27th at 12pm in 108 North House at 1 Devonshire Place and help us welcome the first speaker of the Environmental Working Group Speaker series, Karen Kun.

Karen is the Founder and President of Waterlution, and co-founder of Greatness – The Great Lakes Project. She credits her time living among Indigenous communities in Latin America as the inspiration behind applying water as a metaphor for everything essential in caring for and preserving ourselves and our planet. Fifteen years later, Karen continues to incorporate the practice of storytelling, building personal connections, peer-to-peer social engagement, and empathy as the fundamental tools in creating meaningful water dialogue and supporting water innovation around the globe. She is well known for her motto, which is to simply show up as the key first step to building relationships. Showing up has given Karen the opportunity to develop unexpected partnerships and to experiment with a variety of viewpoints and approaches. As a woman, mother, entrepreneur, risk-taker, mentor and Waterlution’s leader, Karen proudly supports youth and their aspirations towards a resilient water future. Growing skills of future global water leaders with the necessary tools to approach complex water issues has become a monumental aspect of Waterlution’s ongoing work and driver for change. Along with her water background, she is a skilled business leader who from 2005-2012 was publisher of Corporate Knights magazine. She holds a BComm, International Business from Concordia University.
