What exactly does the average person think about water in Canada? And what does this mean for freshwater sustainability in British Columbia? Over the past two years, the Canadian Freshwater Alliance has been working with pollster Angus McAllister to undertake opinion research on public attitudes on freshwater protection in Canada. This has involved a series of focus groups in B.C., as well as a nationwide public opinion survey. In this webinar, Angus will share findings from his research, and outcomes from this latest poll. These findings point to important lessons for groups and organizations working on freshwater protection that want to better engage the public in critical conversations and action. Consultant Tim Morris–co-author of the new POLIS/REFBC report “The State of the Water Movement in British Columbia”–will then discuss B.C.’s emerging on-the-ground “water movement” and how leadership for freshwater protection can be strengthened to help British Columbia reach its potential to become a global leader in freshwater protection and sustainability.
