The Lake Winnipeg Basin Summit video

July 20, 2010
The International Institute for Sustainable Development's Water Innovation Centre has developed this video introducing the Lake Winnipeg Basin Summit, November 30 to December 1, 2010. The summit is a gathering of creative minds from government, business, civil society and academia. Together, we will forge a bold vision for the Lake Winnipeg basin based on the most innovative management concepts emerging from within Manitoba, Canada and around the world. The summit provides an historical and current state of the lake and its basin, presents innovative ideas from Canada and around the world and facilitates discussions for innovative solutions based on social, economic and environmental opportunities for Manitoba and the prairies. The clip combines a Google Earth platform with Geographic Information System-based maps and video animation.
