Fall member meeting agenda

Featuring the Handbook for Water Champions

How do local water champions gain influence and control in watershed decision-making? Thank you to Rosie Simms (bio) from the POLIS Water Sustainability Project and Natasha Overduin (bio) from the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources for sharing the new Handbook for Water Champions: Strengthening Decision-Making and Collaboration for Healthy Watersheds. The Handbook will help watershed groups deepen their understanding of the “how-tos” of governance with practical advice and diagnostic tools.
