Watersheds 2016

watersheds2016coverWatersheds 2016: Edited Proceedings

Working together for watersheds was the foundational theme for Watersheds 2016. Deceptively simple, it reflects both the great challenges and tremendous opportunities facing citizens, communities, and governments, as they grapple with increasing changes and challenges in their home watersheds. The conversations at Watersheds 2016 took place within the context of accelerating climate change and increasing water pressures and demands, and the collective understanding that urgent change is needed in how we manage our relationships with water—and with each other. The one-and-a-half day forum Watersheds 2016: Building Capacity for Collaboration and Watershed Governance in British Columbia was held on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations at Simon Fraser University’s Harbour Centre and Wosk Centre for Dialogue in Vancouver, B.C.
