This week is Canada Water Week! And this video explains the 2012 theme of Canada Water Week:
Canada Water Week is a week-long celebration of water from coast-to-coast-to-coast, held annually in the third week of March to coincide with World Water Day on March 22.
World Water Day is an international day to:
focus attention on the importance of freshwater
advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
For Canada Water Week, this year’s theme is “Discover Your Water Footprint” which is the amount of fresh water used directly and indirectly in one’s daily activities – water used for drinking, cooking and washing, as well as the water used to produce food, paper and other materials.
Service agreement partnerships between First Nations communities and adjacent municipalities.
Also, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities programs provide an opportunity for Canadian municipalities to share know-how and resources domestically as well as overseas through international development initiatives.
The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) Sustainability Conference & Trade Show is FCM’s annual Sustainable Communities Conference and Trade Show, which provides municipal leaders with proven solutions for sustainable community development.
