Water Perspective

Isaac Lamoureux sits down with President and Vice-Chancellor of MacEwan University, Dr. Annette Trimbee, to discuss 2022’s annual theme of adapt. Given her background field-of-research in limnology, aquatic ecology, ecosystem disturbances and her professional work in water management, Dr. Trimbee chose to speak from a water perspective, using Lake Winnipeg and Eerie as examples of water’s ability to adapt to changes in climate and human interaction.

“I love lakes. I love rivers. Water really matters. Climate change has impacted lakes, rivers, dugouts, and there are simple things we can do. The scale to work through these things is local, to regional, and at the scale of the water basin, which doesn’t respect boundaries the way we have drawn them on maps.”
