Water Pledge Week



In combination with the Macdonald Water Day (March 10th) and McGill's Uncharted Water Conference (March 26th-28th), CERES is organizing a Water Pledge Week from March 11th to March 18th. This semester is definitely your chance to learn more about local and global water related issues and what you can do about it.

Specifically pertainnig to CERES' Water Week Pledge, we have activities, prizes (for those who participate) and a big surprise in store for you; so come and join us in the MS lobby. This time blue bracelets will be distributed to those who sign up, so you can complete your collection!

Through the pledge, we hope to raise your awareness as to how much water you consume and challenge you to reduce that consumption. All students and faculty staff are welcomed to take the pledge. Now the only the question is: Will you be ready to take the water pledge?
