Earlier today, the Water Institute and the University of Waterloo’s Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change welcomed over 60 students to the 2022 offering of the three-week virtual summer school, “Climate Change and Water Security in Urbanized Watersheds: An Interdisciplinary Perspective.” The participants are graduate students and practitioners from a variety of fields and organizations. They tuned in from across Canada, from Iqaluit to Montreal to Edmonton, as well as from around the world including Brazil, Germany, Indonesia and the USA, and will continue to do so from May 30 to June 17 to engage with water and climate change scholars in three modules:

  • Climate Change and Water
  • Climate Change and Land Use
  • Climate Change and Water Security

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our 2022 cohort. As we know, 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. Our hope is that this year’s summer school provides students with those connections and an opportunity to improve their skills and knowledge.
