WaterBucket: The Water Portal for British Columbia


Education can play an important role in facilitating change. Education increases our capacity to make informed decisions and to act effectively in addressing environmental and development issues. This education and knowledge needs to reflect priorities in water stewardship, with strong linkages between programs, collaborating provincial and federal agencies, citizens of all ages and local communities.
