What About Water?
What About Water? (formerly known as Let's Talk About Water) aims to empower people and communities to connect water science with the stories that bring about solutions, adaptation, and actions for the world's water realities. Communicating about climate change can be difficult. By leveraging the power of storytelling with water science, our What About Water? programs offer conversations, films, and digital resources that inspire action and make complex information more accessible.

The Conversation Canada
When many Canadians think of the Prairies, they envision beautiful endless landscapes of agricultural fields stretching across the horizon, perfect for a photo-op on a cross-country road trip. But what is missing from this imagery are the once-ubiquitous pothole wetlands, a defining feature of the region.
Extreme weather and climate events causing extensive damage are a fact of the Canadian climate, and this year is no exception.
