Let's celebrate the Great Lakes on the 25th World Water Day
March 22, 2017
World Water Day is a time to remember and celebrate water. This year the focus is on wastewater, so it's a great time to give thanks to Toronto Water.
Coming up soon!
We'll be announcing the plans from a coalition of Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners for the Ontario 150 Great Lakes Water Walk & Celebration.
Led by Anishinaabek Elder Josephine Mandamin, the September 24 event will draw many thousands of Canadians from all walks of life for a trek across Toronto's waterfront, ending in a special blessing – the first step toward an annual National Day of Walking for the Water.
It will be a walk of inspiration, reconciliation and hope.
Watch this space for the date of the announcement celebration. You'll enjoy short documentaries, a talk by Josephine Mandamin and much more.
