Where do you go to the toilet?

When nature calls…

…we need a toilet. But billions of people don’t have one.

To raise awareness about World Toilet Day on November 19, and the importance of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6): to ensure availability and sustainable management of sanitation and water for all, the University of Waterloo's Geographies of Health in Place (GoHelP) lab, led by Susan Elliott, and the Water Institute will host a film screening of Toilet: A Love Story.

Freshwater fish provide diverse ecosystem services. Yet, freshwater fish and fisheries are not often a national or regional governance priority and as a result, freshwater fisheries are undervalued and largely overlooked. Due to lack of reliable data, freshwater fisheries have never been part of any high profile global fisheries assessment and are notably absent from the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) offers a variety of prestigious medals and awards recognizing outstanding achievements of Canadian researchers. It is a responsibility of Fellows of the RSC to nominate candidates for these honours, and they are explicitly invited to do so every year.

Earlier this year, Water Institute member Keith Hipel, professor in Waterloo's Department of Systems Design Engineering, was awarded the Miroslaw Romanowski Medal for significant contributions to the resolution of scientific aspects of environmental problems or for important improvements to the quality of an ecosystem in all aspects — terrestrial, atmospheric and aqueous — brought about by scientific means.

On November 29, professor Hipel will deliver the Miroslaw Romanowski Lecture at the University of Waterloo: "Negotiations over Groundwater Contamination."
