Aboriginal Youth Water Leaders is a project focused on developing leadership capacity among young Aboriginal participants ages 16-25 years. Waterlution is piloting this project in 2014 in the Okanagan region in British Columbia interior. Select young leaders will attend three workshops that will help to build their confidence, expand their water-knowledge landscape, and prompt them to generate innovative solutions for their local communities. The most innovative ideas pitched will be voted on by experts and offered seed funding.
Pillars are in place to expand this program across the country and Waterlution’s next step is to offer it in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec in the following year.
More information coming soon!
