Join the Great Lakes Water Walk

Sunday, September 24.  For the water.  Toronto waterfront.

Everyone is welcome.

Share and re-awaken your commitment to safeguarding the water by walking together.

SEE THE WALK ROUTE & DETAILS. People from all backgrounds from across the Toronto region are invited to share in a day of "walking for the water." Share in traditional ways of showing respect and love of water with Indigenous Grandmothers, Knowledge Holders and Elders.  

The Great Lakes Water Walk is an Indigenous-led, free, public event taking place on Sunday, September 24, 2017 along the Toronto waterfront with a concluding ceremony at Marilyn Bell Park.  #BecauseOfWater

The Great Lakes have shaped and influenced our history, economy, natural environment, and many generations of surrounding communities.

Yet these magnificent bodies of water are far from thriving, suffering from years of neglect, abuse and degradation. By sharing the Indigenous practice of honouring and giving thanks to the water, the Great Lakes Water Walk is an invitation to pause and reflect on what we can do individually and collectively to ensure the health and well-being of our waters for generations to come.

Mark your calendars for MARCH 21-25, 2018
Starting on World Water Day

The 2017 Water Docs Film Festival is a wrap, but if you missed it, you can always check out some of the highlights right here.

The 2017 festival was a fascinating program of films on issues facing global and local water systems. After each screening there were lively Q&A sessions with filmmakers, activists, artists and other related speakers. If you missed us this year, make sure to stay in touch and we look forward to seeing you next March!

Here's a composite trailer from the films we showed at the 6th annual Water Docs Film Festival in March 2017. For trailers of many of the films, see the festival schedule. 

A huge THANK YOU to all of our great volunteers, partners, donors and supporters who all helped to make the film festival possible!

Calling Grade 8 teachers ....

The program, lauded by educators, promotes student exploration and understanding of local water issues by combining inquiry-based, hands-on learning with action projects and filmmaking. The compelling format sparks student enthusiasm and creativity as they go on a 7-month journey to protect the Great Lakes watershed through work in their own community. 

Here's a brochure for the program, including how to register. Webinars will be coming soon to answer your questions.
