Rivers need water. Farmers need water. Cities need water. How can we make ends meet?
How can you – as a watershed leader or river conservationist – help your community conserve water? It is not as easy as just supporting water conservation in theory. What really works best? How can you get people to care enough to actively participate in water efficiency and conservation programs?
River Network is leading a six month Peer Learning Network to explore these questions and help you get people engaged. As a participant, you will learn from national conservation experts, share what you know with your peers and develop your skills as a water conservation leader.
If part of your job is to promote residential water conservation and reduce polluted run off, this program will help you reach your goals.
The program will run from January through June 2014.
Participants are expected to have a local “project” that addresses water conservation or residential run-off control. The program will consist of sharing ideas and approaches, and interacting with national experts. There will be webinars on key topics such as: partnering with utilities, community engagement, and fundraising. Successful local projects will be showcased through River Network’s ongoing programming.
The Project Announcement is attached.
I will be coordinating this effort under contract with River Network. I have many years of experience in watershed protection and project coordination, and am a Professional Coach. If you have questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The program is free to River Network Partner organizations.
Applications are due on January 8, 2014. We look forward to working with you on this program
