Forward Thinking: Syilx Knowledge Informing Watershed Management


Forward Thinking: Syilx Knowledge Informing Watershed Management is the third annual Okanagan Nation Water Forum. The forum will bring together Syilx Nation citizens, government staff, and regional water stakeholders to exchange knowledge and have dialogue in an effort to build relationships and find a common vision for our shared responsibility for water. Join us for a full day of presentations, expert panels, networking, facilitated dialogue and a Social showing youth art.

This gathering will also serve as an opportunity to find future collaborators and partners as the ONA looks forward to the implementation of the pilot watershed management plans within the 4 key Okanagan watersheds.

At the core of the Okanagan Water Forum is our shared concern for how water is managed and recognized in the region. With these concerns in mind there are questions of how we might move towards effective partnerships and working relationships to find solutions to a better water future in the Okanagan.
