Tell Us Your #OntarioWater Innovation Story for a Chance to Present at Water Innovation in Action

What’s your #OntarioWater innovation story? WaterTAP is looking for powerful stories of how taking an innovative approach to problem-solving has generated positive impact – such as more efficient operations, lower carbon emissions, increased knowledge, or better policies – for managing Ontario’s water.

Send your stories for a chance to win a spot to share it with an audience of your peers during the Ideas to Action, Powered by Pecha Kucha session at Water Innovation in Action on November 1, 2017.

What’s a Pecha Kucha 20×20? A PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images and tell a compelling story. WaterTAP will invite five different speakers to share their stories at Water Innovation in Action.

Interested? Contact Kerry Freek at kerry.freek@WaterTAPontario.com to share your story by August 25, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. ET. Here’s what to send:

  • Tell us who you are. What’s your name, and what was your role in this #OntarioWater success story?
  • Share the story in fewer than 400 words: What was the challenge, how did you/your team approach it differently, and what was the outcome? Did you apply a new technology? Did you engage new partners? Did you take a different approach to the status quo? Did you look at old data in a new way? Most importantly, why was it innovative?

The selected storytellers will be notified by August 29, 2017.

*Water Innovation in Action is part of Ontario Water Innovation Week, happening this October 30 to November 3, 2017 in Toronto.
