Leaving no one behind: Water for all

Join the Water Institute for a full day of activities as we explore together how to find viable solutions for marginalized people living without safe water.

UN-Water's World Water Day on March 22, 2019, tackles the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many are being left behind. On this day, the Water Institute will host a World Water Day celebration at the University of Waterloo that will include an Indigenous panel, research posters and lightning talks, a career fair and keynote presented by former Ontario premier Bob Rae.
