World Water Week with Ryerson University and Kidoons

Posted on: Friday, March 24, 2017

For World Water Week, Kidoons partnered with Ryerson Urban Water to create this video about how they're using big picture thinking to address big water challenges in big cities like Toronto. Through interviews and infographics, see climate change, urban water runoff, industrial and agricultural pollution are being addressed through collaboration. You'll see the incredible rooftop Ryerson Urban Farm (which grows all the food for the cafeteria AND sells to market)! They are also building wetlands, bioswales, and green roofs across the city. This wholistic model, now being tested in Toronto, can be applied to any major urban centre in the world. Ryerson Urban Water is showing how Research, Education and Policy can make the the unsustainable urban environment into a resilient and healthy urban environment.
