This was the first webinar in the POLIS Water Sustainability Project's 2013/2014 Creating a Blue Dialogue webinar series. It was presented in partnership with the Canadian Freshwater Alliance with support from the Canadian Water Network.
What exactly does the average person think about water in Canada? And what does this mean for freshwater sustainability in British Columbia? Over the past two years, the Canadian Freshwater Alliance has been working with pollster Angus McAllister to undertake opinion research on public attitudes on freshwater protection in Canada. This has involved a series of focus groups in B.C., as well as a nationwide public opinion survey. In this webinar, Angus shared findings from his research, and outcomes from this latest poll. These findings point to important lessons for groups and organizations working on freshwater protection that want to better engage the public in critical conversations and action. Consultant Tim Morris—co-author of the POLIS/REFBC report The State of the Water Movement in British Columbia—discussed B.C.’s emerging on-the-ground “water movement” and how leadership for freshwater protection can be strengthened to help British Columbia reach its potential to become a global leader in freshwater protection and sustainability.
