Lake Winnipeg: Shared Solutions is the very first integration of virtual reality/video simulation technology and pure water science in Canada. A totally new type of museum exhibit and online adventure, it is a one-of-a-kind experience where visitors’ imaginations, intelligence and ingenuity meet the realm of sustainable development.
The setting for Lake Winnipeg: Shared Solutions showcases one of the 10 largest freshwater lakes in the world – Lake Winnipeg – and its basin, which spans four provinces and four US states. Due to its shallow depth, Lake Winnipeg is especially vulnerable to climate change and is under severe stress due to nutrient overloading from industry, agriculture, and communities throughout its vast Basin.
Stretching from the edge of Lake Superior to the Rockies, the Lake Winnipeg Basin is truly enormous. Home to 7 million people and 17 million livestock in Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta, it also impacts North and South Dakota, Minnesota and Montana.
