The Story of Water: How Albertans can help solve the World’s water crisis

March 21, 2010 - 10:30pm to March 22, 2010 - 12:30am

World Water Week reminds people that clean water is quickly becoming scarce. Approximately one billion people lack access to safe drinking water and 2.4 billion people lack water for adequate sanitation (see Almost half of the World’s population faces water scarcity (

Although Darfur and Calgary seem worlds apart, both share the same problem: water. For the first time in 15 years, the Government of Alberta plans to change how water is allocated, which gives Albertans a great opportunity to shape the future of this and future generations to come. Come and join us for the Story of Water: How Albertans Can Help Solve the World’s Water Crisis, because Albertans can be a part of the solution by being actively engaged at home.
