I'm planning a virtual celebration for the end of the summer that will consist of compiling pre-recorded content into a streaming presentation with some live (emcee maybe one performing artist) and interactive elements. I would like to help with planning the culmination event and some lead-up logistics including teasers and messaging on social media platforms. Also, the heavy-lift from my perspective will be streamlining the technology strategy, so I could use great advice there.
2021 marks FLOW's 10-year Anniversary and the retirement of two of our key staff including our founder. As we look back to where we've been it informs our vision forward to the next decade of water protection. This event will serve to honor the past, our champions, and tell the story of the path ahead of us and how crucial it is for everyone's voice to be heard on the issue of safe, affordable, access to clean water for all! In an entertaining, educational interactive format that empowers action
Everything we do is reflected in our name: For Love of Water. Our mission is to empower people with public trust strategies that will protect the Great Lakes forever. FLOW's solution-oriented work comes at a time when the health of the Great Lakes hangs in the balance, and citizens and leaders are looking for viable long-term policies to improve and protect these common waters. Famed environmental attorney Jim Olson and a coalition of citizens formed FLOW in 2011.
As the Great Lakes Basin's only public trust policy and education center, we demonstrate how policies like the public trust and commons can provide an overarching policy framework that empowers decision-makers to safeguard 20 percent of the world's fresh water. FLOW develops policy programs and educates high-level decision-makers, city and community leaders, and citizens to adopt and incorporate public trust ideas into decisions affecting water, energy, food, and climate change in the Great Lakes.
