Event Description
Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 10:00 to Thursday, December 3, 2020 - 11:30 3rd Annual Vancouver Island Symposium on Water Stewardship in a Changing Climate

The Third Annual Vancouver Island Symposium on Water Stewardship in a Changing Climate will be delivered by video on YouTube as a series of three “Watershed Moments”

In the age of COVID, thought leaders must find new ways to connect with and inspire an audience. But how do you inspire someone over a computer? Addressing this challenge was the starting point for “Watershed Moments, the Video Trilogy Series”.
 
It moves well beyond a Zoom webinar by using YouTube to provide a viewer experience that will be comparable to viewing an engaging TED Talk.  
 
The focus of the Video Trilogy Series is on the whole-system approach, connecting land and water, and restoring water balance in altered landscapes. At the conclusion of each video, viewers will be able to chat in real-time with the presentation team.
 
 
The Registration Fee for the series is a nominal amount - $30 for stewardship groups and $50 for all others!
 
Monday, November 30, 2020 - 11:30 to Wednesday, December 2, 2020 - 11:30 ICLEI Livable Cities Forum
