World Water Day 2016

This World Water Day, we are asking how we can ensure a healthy future for Lake Winnipeg.

What does a healthy Lake Winnipeg look like? What should the next provincial government be doing to protect it? How can Winnipeggers get involved?

Join us for a lively debate on Tuesday, March 22, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the Winnipeg Free Press Café, 237 McDermot Ave, Winnipeg.

Co-hosted by LWF and the International Institute for Sustainable Development.

March 16 to 20 was Canada Water Week, an annual celebration of water from coast to coast to coast, held in advance of World Water Day on March 22. Inspired by this year’s national theme, Know Your H20, LWF created an interactive, week-long challenge to highlight the connection between urban water and the health of Lake Winnipeg.

Follow Your Water, Winnipeg, kicked off last Monday morning where Winnipeg’s Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet. We placed a sign with our distinctive LWF logo at Oodena Celebration Circle, then asked participants to find it and take an “LWFelfie” with it.
