Addressing the state's water challenges by improving water efficiency through diverse community connections, innovative solutions and valuable member resources
Please join Water Education Colorado (WEco), the Water Educator Network, and the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE) for a 90-minute webinar on Inclusive Civic Engagement in a Pandemic.
Increasing participation in community discourse and decision processes is an outcome envisioned in the Statewide Water Education Action Plan for Colorado (SWEAP), an objective of the Colorado Water Plan, and a key component of WEco and CAEE's work. This webinar will introduce resources and examples for incorporating best practices for inclusive civic engagement in an era of social distancing and remote learning.
In this webinar, you will hear an overview of the Community Engagement: Guidelines for Excellence and from a panel of three speakers who are thinking carefully about broad civic participation in water policy and planning efforts even during these times of social distancing when large gatherings are restricted.
Bora Simmons, National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education
Kathryn Weismiller, Deputy Section Chief, Water Supply Planning, Colorado Water Conservation Board
Emily Zmak, Water Practice Lead, CDR Associates
