Climate change poses significant and increasing risks to water security in urban settings. Addressing this complex challenge requires collaboration and the incorporation of expertise across various disciplines. Starting at the end of May, the University of Waterloo’s Water Institute (WI) and IC3 are advancing these efforts by co-delivering a uniquely designed, three-week virtual summer school, “Climate Change and Water Security in Urbanized Watersheds: An Interdisciplinary Perspective.” The summer school, aimed at graduate students and practitioners, will comprise of daily one hour sessions, Monday to Friday, from May 30 to June 17, 2022.

The University of Waterloo is finishing their participation in an exciting new collaborative program, Climate Connect; involving 60+ students and 20+ researchers from across the world to gather and discuss climate change. IC3 member, Angela Carter, and IC3's managing director, Simon Glauser, reflected on the program's benefits with the help of upper-year students Simrit Dhillon, Nilusha Rattansi and Philip Zuidema.
