Water from a Global Perspective and Beyond
“The Partnership for Water Sustainability BC organization committee thanks Bob McDonald for his thought provoking presentation of Water from a Global Perspective and Beyond that truly provides the focus and context to rethink the invaluable role that water plays in our collective survival,” wrote Eric Bonham. He provided closing remarks at the Blue Ecology.
“Bob’s participation in the Blue Ecology – A workshop on Interweaving First Nations Cultural Knowledge and Western Science, held in Richmond on November 28th, was much appreciated by all who attended.
Water, Water, Everywhere….
“Given his natural ability to relay complex scientific information in an easy to understand and fun way is always a highlight when Bob McDonald speaks at a Partnership workshop or conference.
“His support to the Partnership is invaluable and appreciated as we forge partnerships with like minded individuals and organizations working towards the common good on water related issues. In that regard the recent workshop theme of interweaving Indigenous Culture and Western Science is another example of a step in that direction.
“Bob’s observation that climate change is a reality and needs an immediate and collective response given water is the issue of the 21st century, is timely, and a message that cannot be repeated enough. That said, and as noted in the collective article in the Vancouver Sun, we share a positive vision of the future, seeking solutions through collaborative partnerships and a realignment of the water story.
“We thank Bob for his important role in helping to forge that future and for his contribution to the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC.”
