World Water Day Youth Conference @ The Manitoba Museum
Registration now open!
Please click on this link to register students for the in-person World Water Day youth event @ the Manitoba Museum on Wednesday, March 20, 2024!
*NOTE: The official World Water Day is on March 22, but we are hosting our event a couple of days earlier so you can debrief with your students before Spring Break!
We have an exciting line-up of Indigenous elders, scientists, and educators to engage students with issues and concerns dealing with water. Participants will hear presentations, attend the Worlds of Ice planetarium show, and engage with each other on important water-related topics. Students will be encouraged to commit to actions to help improve access to clean water and other climate-related concerns.
Content of the event is geared towards senior years (Grades 9-12), however, keen and engaged students from Grades 6-8 are welcome. At this time, we are asking for one adult to attend for every 9 youth participants. Students will be asked to split up in pairs or trios at separate tables to ensure table discussions from a diverse group. At least one adult (teacher, chaperone, Museum staff/volunteer) will be at each table to ensure discussions are facilitated properly.
Admission to this event is FREE thanks to the generous support of the Quintex Services Inc. Johnston Group & the Graham C. Lount Family Foundation. This event is done in partnership with Science First, Manitoba Museum and GenAction.
Check-in begins at 9:00 am
Event begins at 9:30 am
Event concludes at 2:00 pm
*All participants must bring a lunch with them.*
