Celebrating water


On June 10, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society launched a multimedia initiative, in partnership with the RBC Blue Water Project, to encourage Canadians to protect their watersheds. Jeff Boyd, a regional president of RBC, Meg Beckel, president and CEO of the Canadian Museum of Nature, and André Préfontaine, executive director of the Society, spoke at the event in Ottawa marking RBC’s Blue Water Day.

The cornerstone of the project is an interactive map that describes 595 Canadian watersheds and enables users to find their local watershed.

The online tool is “a tremendous resource for teachers,” says Anne Smith, an adjunct instructor in the faculty of education at Queen’s University. “It is a perfect example of a product that will increase geographic literacy among students, in our efforts to create global citizens.”
