Virtual Living Waters Rally 2013

October 3, 2013 - 6:00am to October 4, 2013 - 6:00am

This is an online event, you can participate in the comfort of your home or office

A year ago this month, over 100 of Canada’s leading freshwater changemakers came together for an inspirational and informative weekend of sharing, capacity building and strategizing.

The inaugural Living Waters Rally received rave reviews!  In the words of one participant, the Rally “...was incredibly helpful to a small organization, to a municipality (both of which I represented), and to the Atlantic basin as a whole.”

The Freshwater Alliance team can hardly believe it’s been almost a year since its inaugural event in Gatineau, QC!  On October 3 and 4, 2013 we are getting ready to do it again, and this time with a twist - this year the Rally is going virtual!

We are thrilled to release another top notch agenda full of prominent speakers and success stories from our community.  This year’s event will cover topics from engagement organizing to storytelling and theories of change.  You can participate in this online event from the comfort of your home; which means, yes, you can wear your pyjamas all day and no one will know the difference!

We have some awesome new speakers for this year’s Rally.  The creative and humorous minds behind the “Shit Harper Did” campaign will be leading a session on memes and social media success.  We will also have the pleasure of hearing from the team at the helm of, an online engagement organizing platform for social and environmental change.

Back by popular demand are Angus McAllister and Tony Maas.  Angus will share new results from a national opinion poll we recently completed on Freshwater.  Learn how your communication techniques can drive supporters and membership.  Tony will lead a discussion on connecting our efforts from coast-to-coast-to-coast to create a national water story and national action towards a collective living waters goal.

Registration for the Rally is now OPEN.  Click here to find out more and register.

The cost is 30$/day or $50 for the whole Rally.  To accommodate Canada’s 5 time zones, we have done our best to schedule presentations at reasonable times for people from St. John’s to Victoria.
