One Watershed, Many Voices: The Ottawa River and Transboundary Challenges
"One Watershed, Many Voices” is a weekend residential workshop for up-and-coming leaders aged 18-35 years. The purpose of this experiential workshop is to build the capacity of current and future leaders to design sustainable solutions to transboundary water issues. The workshop will facilitate relationships between diverse stakeholders, equip leaders with the knowledge to understand pressing issues, and aim to promote a passion for healthy watersheds among the region’s leaders of tomorrow. With expert guidance from Ottawa Riverkeeper, the group will learn about innovative initiatives and explore ways to overcome complex issues through multi-stakeholder dialogue. Field visits on and around the river will give participants a firsthand perspective on how human activities affect the river and how various communities are involved in its management. As the Ottawa River faces increased challenges from climate change, urbanization and development, now is the time to get tomorrow’s decision-makers involved.
Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with local organizations and individuals leading the way in sustainable development, and peers who are ready to join you as tomorrow’s smart decision makers!
