Dear Division 16,
I’ve been thinking a lot about how many different ways we relate to the water around us and how many approaches there are to solving the problems we face as a society when it comes to our water usage.
I found this article that I think is super interesting because it suggests categories for responding to water issues. Not only that, but it takes it’s leadership from a Canadian First Nation, the Okanagan Nation.
Please read the article, choose one or more of the tips contained there, and answer the question that follows.
In your response today, please identify which of the 5 tips in the article you would like to write about and make a personal connection to your project. Perhaps you’ve looked at the change in glaciers and want to comment on what we’ve learned about past behaviour that can help protect the future.
Maybe you’ve been inspired by the work of our elected representatives and our community members to protect water sources and are feeling connected to our democratic process and want to write about laws and how they can protect our water in the future.
Make sure you’re connecting the text in the article to your learning process through the Hydrosphere project so far.
I look forward to your responses,
