Elizabeth Hendriks
Vice-president, Freshwater Program
My career and activities, like water, seems to be constantly changing forms! I did my graduate work at the University of Waterloo and learned something about the water soft path concept and changing water management paradigms. I worked with blue builders – residential home builders who care about changing the way they do business. I worked with the POLIS Water Sustainability Project as the Water Policy and Governance Coordinator rushing through the current outpouring of legal water reform. I have been a Waterlution Associate and, over the years, have had the opportunity to meander and dabble in a myriad of water issues as I helped create the space for different folks with different strokes to have conversations about the water challenges they face in their communities. I am managing the Living Water Policy Project, a national initiative organized by water policy leaders across the country. We navigate the floods and droughts of water policy information. Finally, I am a new import to WWF – Canada and am working in the Freshwater Programme. I love connecting to both the usual and unusual suspects and hope to do so through this blog.
