DAY 1- July 27th, 2016
Waterlution Facilitated Activities
Day 1 is designed to break the ice and to get our creative juices flowing!!! Waterlutions' unique approach to opening up water dialogue is the ideal way to set the tone for this multidisciplinary conference: collaborative and community-centric. Waterlution "views water as a natural connecting point around which diverse individuals and groups can come together to find commonalities and engage in meaningful dialogue" and this is exactly what they will bring to WatIF 2016. The Waterlution guided journeys will help to break down barriers, open conversation, and encourage creativity and a sense of community among students. These activities will provide students with the opportunity to experience collaborative, interdisciplinary work in action. The entire day will be spent doing fun filled activities!!!

Climate Action Workshop
Through public engagement, consultation, and research, Sustainable Kingston is building an action plan for community-driven sustainability in Kingston, Ontario. The action plan is being built around a number of themes including climate change and water. Right now, one of the major focuses of their public engagement/consultation efforts is getting people to share what they believe will be some of the biggest opportunities and challenges around each of their themes.
Sustainable Kingston will host a 2 hour workshop where WatIF delegates will participate in various activities. This is your opportunity to put what you know to the test and work in teams to come up with a solution for the city of Kingston. This will also give delegates a better idea of the City of Kingston, and outcomes will be extrapolated to a global scale in the WatIF final report. In addition, Sustainable Kingston will publish the outcomes on their website, and include them in their action plan.
