October 27 and November 12 at 5:00-6:00 PM EDT/EST
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.
Register – Part I on October 27 will focus on how to begin building enabling conditions for sewage mitigation via internal and external readiness and identify champions for your efforts in social science and communications.
Register – Part II on November 12 will highlight the role of partnerships, tactics to build support, financing, and durable changes achieved so far in the implementation process.
