Water For Future Generations

Water for Future Generations was a cross continental canoeing expedition to raise awareness about water-related environmental issues and inspire leadership among politicians, business owners, and the general public. The organizer and paddler of the expedition, Seth Wotten, canoed from the southeastern to the far northwestern end of Canada over the course of 2006, 2007, and 2008 (Montreal, Quebec to Inuvik, Northwest Territories).

Water is one of the most vitally important resources on this planet. It is important to our people for survival and health, as a means of transport, and as a setting and vehicle for recreation. It also sustains all life on this planet, nourishing the food that we eat and the resources we depend on. This expedition is calling for political leadership in developing a Canadian water act. It is also encouraging the general public to give water further consideration and take action for our water. We must ensure that our water remains pure and plentiful for future generations.
