Inspired by Canada Water Week as well as World Water Day (March 22, 2016), Trojan is happy to be involved in a number of initiatives, all which celebrate water and raise awareness of water-related issues.
Water and Jobs Networking Event
To raise awareness of World Water Day and Canada Water Week, Trojan Technologies will host a student networking event at its head office in London on Tuesday March 22.
Inspired by the UN World Water Day theme Water and Jobs, Trojan has invited engineering students from Western and Fanshawe to tour its facility, learn about various water treatment technologies and jobs, and speak with staff about the importance of water and sustainability.
Held annually on March 22, World Water Day is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues. United Nations launched the first World Water Day on March 22, 1993. This year’s theme is Water and Jobs, and focuses on the power that water and jobs have to transform people’s lives.
Sponsorship of the Barefoot Walk
In conjunction with its World Water Day networking event, Trojan is also proud to announce its sponsorship of the Barefoot Walk, a student driven charity event that raises money and awareness for people around the world who do not have access to basic needs, such as water.
Trojan Chief Technology Officer Speaking at University of Waterloo
Additionally on March 22, Trojan`s Linda Gowman – Chief Technology Officer – will be the Keynote speaker at the 7th Annual Graduate Research Fair and Water Celebration at the University of Waterloo. The UN-inspired event is a celebration of water, specifically recognizing research in water and is jointly hosted by the grad students of the University of Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier University.
Children’s Water Festival Launch
The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority’s launch of the Children’s Water Festival will also take place on March 22. Trojan has been a proud sponsor of this festival for several years, and is happy to announce the continuation of their support this year. The annual festival is a fun, educational event for students (in grades 2 through 5) to learn about the importance of water.
