“Argue for your limitations

Learning Outcomes ~ upon completion of this gathering, the student will be able to…
1. Understand how peoples’ worldviews, values, and beliefs are reflected in daily life.
2. Investigate policies and practices of environmental management and sustainable development.
3. Interact with others in ways that encourage the ‘good mind’; contribute to effective working and personal relationships, and the achievement of goals.
Why do we need water protection?
Many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit communities have been under a ‘boil-water advisory’ for years, sometimes decades. How long do you think an urban center, such as Toronto or Ottawa, would have to wait to rectify a boil-water advisory? 25 years? A generation born and raised into adulthood without safe drinking water.
