MSP in practice

In Waterloo, Canada, a new competition that promotes multi-stakeholder approaches to water protection is launched: The AquaHacking 2017 Challenge.

AquaHacking 2017 Challenge is a five-month hackathon that challenges water students, hackers, and engineers to build technology tackling issues related to waters. Claude Perras, executive direcot of the Gaspé Beaubien Foundation, states:

“AquaHacking is a multi-generational, multi-sector, and multi-stakeholder movement that aims to conserve the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence, and to foster the quality and responsible use of these waters.”

Initiators of the Hackathon are the Water Institute at the University of Waterloo and the Gaspé Beaubien Foundation who have announced a three-year partnership that will combine water research and tech to control threats to Canada’s water resources. Read further here.
