The 2020 KM webinar series builds on the basic KM knowledge and skills introduced during the KM 101 Webinar Series (2018-2019). Featuring invited special guests and fast-paced, discussion-style webinars that will engage the voices of  partners, water practitioners, and KM experts to share a diversity of perspectives on how KM skills and engagements translate into successful collaborations with research impact.

Through story sharing and open and honest discussions, attendees will hear how contemporary approaches in knowledge mobilization can be directly applied to elevate their water research into impact spaces. You will take away a broader understanding of knowledge mobilization approaches, ideas, tips and strategies for moving forward, and examples of success from colleagues.

Youth Engagement

Youth are important stakeholders in the climate change and water research in Canada as they represent the scientists, decision-makers and leaders of tomorrow. GWF researchers have the opportunity to inspire the next generation to get involved in creating new and innovative solutions to current and future climate and water scenarios. However, creating programs and activities to engage youth through demonstrations, on-the-land camps, school visits and presentations isn’t easy. In this webinar a panel of youth education and engagement specialists will share their experiences in developing and delivering programming aimed at inspiring youth to become interested and involved in science and drive community action across Canada.
