Global Water Futures Waterloo meeting

Last week, the Water Institute gathered University of Waterloo researchers involved in the Global Water Futures (GWF) project for a university-wide meeting to share updates and meet new members of the GWF core team.

Philippe Van CappellenProfessor Philippe Van Cappellen, Water Institute member and the GWF program co-ordinator at Waterloo, chaired the meeting and delivered a presentation on the nine Waterloo-led projects aimed at enhancing the resilience and adaptive capacity of Canada’s water resources in the face of climate change.

There was an opportunity to connect with the leaders of the core teams and learn more about how these specialised teams can support each of the GWF projects at Waterloo. Fereidoun Razenezhad introduced the technical team, Jimmy Lin discussed how the computer science team can provide data management support, and the GWF communications liaison, Allie Dusome, introduced the new Knowledge Mobilization specialist starting June 25, 2018.

The second half of the meeting was an interactive workshop for graduate students on how to better communicate their research. Students had an opportunity to ask questions and to learn about plain language writing, as well as how to give a successful media interview, and how to use social media effectively.

The workshop concluded with a short presentation from the new chair of Students of the Water Institute Graduate Section (SWIGS), Mark Ranjram, who invited the attendees to an after-meeting social at The Bombshelter Pub.Group of SWIGS students
