The Waterlution Calgary Hub

Connecting change agents in Southern Alberta.


The Waterlution Hub Network operates as a "Learning Lab". A lab is a place for experimenting. You can sit at the edge of your discomfort and still have enough support to comfortably play with ideas, projects and even games and to stretch your capacity in learning and leading change. If you fail - it’s ok! You try again. The Hub will build your professional development through skills of collaborative learning, creative dialogue and problem solving. You will co-create with a diverse group, pick the best ideas and find ways to move them forward.

How it works:  If you have a project that you're working on or a dream project that you'd like to launch forward, you can have the opportunity to describe it to a small group of your peers and receive their feedback. If you don't have a project, join in and provide your invaluable perspective and experience to fellow change makers and their projects.
