[March 23rd, 2014]

Yo everybody,

This week's weekly stuff is less redundant than that was:

General Meeting: Elections
Come out to E5 2004 this Tuesday (the 25th) for our next general meeting! This one features our seven team lead elections. Candidates for each role will share their platforms, then we'll vote on them, then we'll assign each winner a [possibly nefarious] string to ensure that their victory is bittersweet.
For example: last week I was elected president, and the chapter decided to attack my hair-style. For the first meetings of next term, you'll see me in a suit and comb-over... I don't even own a comb >_>
Oh, and if you're interested in running, you should contact Savannah at people@uwaterloo.ewb.ca .

Global Citizenship Workshop
This Wednesday, at 6:30 pm in E5 3102, the chapter is hosting a global citizenship workshop involving various community-minded UW clubs helps us expand and deepen our awareness of global citizenship. We will share our specialized knowledge and varying perspectives to achieve a common goal, and helps to expand our varying understandings of global citizenship.
In this workshop, we’ll carry out a real-time simulation case study with global citizenship in mind - this could be a simulation scenario involving an international aid project in a developing country, a business, logistics or marketing project with a moral dilemma, or anything under the moon! Think of it like a role-playing game where the scenarios do occur in the real world, and we have to carry out the scenario. We’ll have to work together with (or against) other global citizens, to achieve our make-believe goals, and at the end, we’ll be reflecting and assessing our ultimate impact on our goals and on each other.

Suggestions to Dean's Office re: TransCanada Announcement
Last week, the Faculty of Engineering announced they have received funding for a research partnership with TransCanada and named the E5 LiveLink room after them. Donations always bring some degrees of influence, and we'd like to ask the Dean's office to provide a complementary counter-influence and do our best to keep engineering students focussed on the defining problem of our generation. Information about the announcement can be found here and we'd also like to collect a few thoughts from our community (you) here.

International Water Cooperation Speaker Series
The next installment in our International Water Cooperation speaker series is here! H2O 4 ALL co-founder Timothy Muttoo will be speaking on Tuesday March 25th at 12:00 pm in DC 1403, and as always, free pizza will be provided!
This is what H2O 4 ALL have to say about themselves:
"H2O 4 ALL is an innovative Canadian charity made up of passionate people committed to developing and implementing sustainable WaSH (water, sanitation and hygiene) solutions in developing countries. By partnering with local charitable organizations and NGOs, we are able to engage and empower local community leaders to take ownership in these solutions.
Our interventions immediately impact the life of many, especially women and children, who have the responsibility to gather water daily. Presently H2O 4 ALL is has initiated work in 9 developing countries - 6 African countries, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Colombia, South America. H2O 4 ALL uses water to create sustainable socioeconomic growth."
