IISD Blue Drinks event

You are here

In honour of Earth Day 2017, we’ll be joining the International Institute of Sustainable Development at Barn Hammer Brewing Company on April 25, to share why fresh water matters to Manitobans.

LWF’s Lake Winnipeg Indigenous Co-ordinator, Johanna, will be one of several presenters who will be explaining why water is so vital for what they do. In lively three-minute presentations, they will explore why water matters to the art scene, local business, our agricultural sector and our history, as well as what traditional knowledge reveals about our relationship to water.

Quick, snappy and to the point—strictly no PowerPoints will be allowed!

For the rest of the evening, you can mingle with the presenters, ask questions, share your thoughts and enjoy one of water’s greatest gifts to us: cold, locally brewed beer!

When: 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 25, 2017 (just after Earth Day)

Where: Barn Hammer Brewing Company, 595 Wall St, Winnipeg

You can register for this event here. Registration is not required, however, please note that the maximum capacity of Barn Hammer’s taproom is 50 people.

LWF publishes a newsletter, The Watershed Observer, twice a year. Our most recent edition includes an update on our community-based monitoring efforts, a profile on LWF member and volunteer extraordinaire Paul Trevenen, plus information about proposed changes to provincial legislation that could affect Manitoba water quality and how you can get involved.
