About Waterlution

We are all about people, and for the last decade, Waterlution holds water as the unequivocal metaphor of global connection.

Since our inception, we have expanded into a diverse and global network with the single motivation to grow the importance of water across industries as a catalyst for community building and adapting to the needs of our planet’s future. As facilitators, Waterlution has pioneered curated experiential learning techniques as a platform to create opportunities for young leaders and professionals to build diverse connections, and foster creativity that directly results in meaningful dialogue and action in the water space.

We must be bold in our endeavours and challenge traditional methods of dealing with global and complex water issues in order to energize, empower, and equip young leaders and professionals with fundamental 21st century skills and tools necessary as we approach the future of water.

Our History

Since 2003, Waterlution has catapulted its facilitation practice into a multi-stakeholder dialogue, encompassing a broad network of engaged, diverse individuals, organizations and communities, with the understanding that everyone has a vested interest in water.

For over 14 years, Waterlution’s dedication to promoting water awareness and opportunities for collaboration has been a catalyst in creating sustainable and innovative water management systems. It is our belief that curating social engagement practices is key to developing a creative and collaborative platform to uncover innovative solutions for the future of water.

Our Vision

Our combination of content and process–the two key drivers of systemic change–enables meaningful dialogue and innovative action in the water sector. We believe that one without the other leads to marginal results.

In practice, Waterlution’s purpose is to inspire pattern-making and pattern-breaking change towards a healthy and sustainable relationship with water. At the core of our work is the belief that by engaging future young leaders with mentors directly, we are facilitating the development of powerful leadership skills, effective community building, and directing passion into focused and purposeful action.

This is evident in our Canadian and international workshops, hub events and Water Innovation Labs. Waterlution’s facilitation skills-building methods have engaged 6000+ participants with the transformative skills needed to find their water voice and boost them into becoming leaders in the future of water innovation.
