C2E To Be Featured in River Network Webinar Series: Financial Innovations for River and Watershed Conservation
The River Network quarterly forum is a webinar series and discussion opportunity that provides the public with exposure to new ideas and innovations related to river and watershed protection and restoration from across the nation. The first River Network quarterly forum will be held March 17 at 10:00 am and will deal with innovative financial mechanisms for river and watershed protection. As one of the three invited speakers, WRRC Outreach Coordinator, Brittany Xiu will talk about WRRC’s Conserve2Enhance (C2E) program, an innovative approach connecting voluntary water conservation to community action. C2E helps residents and businesses conserve water by providing participants with access to a free online dashboard that charts and tracks their water usage. Participants can choose to contribute to the program with donations comparable to the amount they saved through conservation techniques. C2E uses these contributions from participants to fund community-identified enhancement projects.
The forum will run for up to 90 minutes - 45 minutes for short and informative presentations by guest speakers and up to an additional 45 minutes for discussion where attendees can engage with the speakers, address critical concerns, and surface useful insights.
