The University of Waterloo hosted the workshop Local Water Solutions in a Changing Climate on December 5, 2018. Almost 100 researchers, partners and knowledge users attended.
This workshop was a chance for five University of Waterloo projects, including Lake Futures, to connect with external partners and stakeholders to exchange knowledge. It was a very interactive event promoting one on one discussions between our UW researchers and knowledge end-users. The day started off with a brief introduction to each of the projects, followed by a self-guided tour through project posters, and ending with round table discussions.
Our researchers had the opportunity to highlight progress that's been made since Lake Futures started, both during the opening presentation and the poster session. Then round table discussions gave the external organizations an opportunity to discuss how they are working to address water challenges, in order to improve collaboration between our researchers and partner organizations.
Overall, the day was a success as new connections were made, knowledge was exchanged and synergies were created.
