Join Stuart Lowrie and Christopher Clapp of The Nature Conservancy for a Long Island Sewage Story – a two-part webinar telling the tale of a 10-year effort to tackle the daunting nitrogen pollution issue on Long Island and shift the paradigm in water management. Stuart and Chris will describe their ongoing recipe for impactful and enduring conservation: good science, adaptive strategies, technological innovation, social science to shift norms, policy initiatives at local, state, and federal levels, new funding streams, and partnerships of all kinds. Stuart and Chris will also share insights into how they inspired donors and engaged policy makers, as well as share a few of the pitfalls and challenges they encountered along the way. The presentations will be followed by discussion.
These webinars are part of a series of online activities and events about ocean sewage pollution – an enormous environmental problem that few people are talking about. During the series, we will discuss and demystify this massive ocean issue and innovative approaches being used to address it.
