Wilfrid Laurier University

Wilfrid Laurier University is currently leading Northern Water Futures, a cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional team studying the sustainability of water in the Northwest Territories. We developed a logo of a face emerging from topographic lines. This mark symbolizes humanities interdependence on the natural environment. Facial and topographical elements also communicate the blend of scientific and traditional knowledge required by the project.

Funding is provided by Global Water Futures, the largest university-led water research program worldwide.
