OUR 2020 THEME: "SHARED PERSPECTIVES, CLEAR VISION" 

 

With the growing impact of climate change, the water sector is in a time of uncertainty. As our environment continues to change rapidly around us, we have less clarity of what the future will look like than ever before. In order to mitigate the risks of our ever-changing environment, the water sector must come together to reflect on lessons from the past, build on successes of the present and develop a clear vision for the future.

 

Historically, the segregated and isolated practice in the different areas of the water sector have led to siloed approaches to the common problems with little opportunity for collaborative and synergistic overlap. With the idea of ‘shared perspectives’, we look at how we can embrace diverse viewpoints and perspectives to promote the sharing of knowledge within the sector as a whole. Are there opportunities for very different groups to work together to drive positive change? What new and emerging perspectives may change the way we deliver water and wastewater services? Through creating opportunities for individuals within different areas of the sector to come together, we strive to promote the sharing of ideas to achieve a common goal.

 

The 2020 BCWWA Virtual Conference & Trade Show revolves around the idea of using these shared perspectives to gain a clear vision for the future. This theme showcases how diverse perspectives from different areas of the sector may offer complimentary solutions to common problems the industry is facing. Through reflecting on lessons learned and examining current practices, the water sector may begin to form a clear ‘20/20’ vision for what the future of water may hold.
