World Water Day is an annual celebration that highlights the importance of freshwater in our communities and around the globe, and aims to inspire education on water-related issues. This year’s theme is ‘Leaving no one behind”, an adaptation of the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit.

The G360 Institute for Groundwater Research was founded by Dr. Beth Parker in 2007 at the University of Guelph. Originally called the G360 Centre for Applied Groundwater Research, the name changed in 2017 to the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research to better reflect the numerous successful and continual collaborations between the G360 group and researchers at Universities around the globe.
To ensure the long-term success and growth of the Institute at the University of Guelph, G360 assembled an Advisory Board to provide strategic input to the G360 Directorship on a variety of matters relating to the Institute’s vision and mission and its relationship to the internal (University of Guelph) and external environments.
The Board will meet two times per year. Its inaugural meeting was held on February 28ᵗʰ of this year and a 2ⁿᵈ meeting followed on the 19ᵗʰ September 2018.
The Board members were selected for their broad and applicable experience in the domain of subsurface characterization and/or their relevance to the Institute’s interests at the University. Get to know the board members here.
The School of Engineering and the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research at the University of Guelph invites you to a celebration of World Water Day.
