Event Details

The keynote evening of the 2017 NatureCity Festival features an evening with Maude Barlow, renowned Canadian author, water activist, former UN Senior Advisor on water. and board chair of the Council of Canadians We bask in the idea that Canada holds 20% of the world’s fresh water — water crises face other countries, but not ours. We could not be more wrong. 

This keynote evening, Maude will lay bare the issues facing Canada’s water reserves, including long-outdated water laws, unmapped and unprotected groundwater reserves, agricultural pollution, industrial-waste dumping, boil-water advisories, and the effects of deforestation and climate change. This will be the defining issue of the coming decade, and most of us have no idea that it is on our very own doorstep.

Join us for an inspiring evening, hosted by Wildernook's Jana Miller, and joined by special guest Marjorie Beaucage. Marjorie is a Manitoba Red River Franco-Metis cultural worker, community-based filmmaker/storyteller, researcher, educator, and community leader.

This event is no cost, rush seating. Please register for your tickets in advance here.

** There will be Computerized Note-taking Service (CNS) service at the event for individuals Deaf or hard of hearing. **
