Launch of a New Strategic Planning Process

The Nechako Watershed Roundtable (NWR) was established in October 2015, which means that 2020 is a 5-year milestone. To mark this, the Nechako Watershed Roundtable is initiating a planning process to map out its future direction.

This planning process will take place from January to June 2021.

To learn more, check out this one-page briefing Launch of Strategic Planning Process: Nechako Watershed Roundtable. Stay tuned over the next few months; the NWR will be looking for your contributions to the Roundtable's first Strategic Plan.

NWR Video Project for Youth

Water_NWR/nwr_video_project_200px.png

The Nechako Watershed Roundtable is engaging youth to participate in the production of a video that will depict the many narratives of the Nechako watershed. The film will highlight the NWR, the Nechako watershed and the communities of the Nechako watershed through the voices of youth participants. The first youth workshop for this project was held on October 17, 2020. Due to Covid-19, the project has been extended and will be unfolding over the course of 2021.

First Nations Representatives Needed for Core Committee

The Nechako Watershed Roundtable Core Committee has two seats open for First Nations representatives.

First Nations government candidates are nominated by their respective organizations. Candidates subsequently submit to the Nechako Watershed Roundtable an application (available from the Secretariat) and a formal letter of appointment from their organization. Current Core Committee members will decide on the approval of incoming members.
