Oregon World Water Day is an umbrella campaign for organizations, individuals and businesses across the state to talk about their connections to water. We hope that you will leverage these tools to elevate the conversation around water in your community and help us reach more people about the importance of investing in clean and reliable water!
Here are several ways to get involved:
Sign on as an outreach partner
Engage your community to be champions for clean water! Share your water stories throughout the month of March and connect your work to the campaign using the hashtags #watercantwait and #worldwaterday.
Plan ahead to highlight World Water Day in your newsletters, on your website or blog, and social media channels. In its first year, the campaign reached nearly 150,000 impressions on social media thanks to outreach partners across the state! Sign up today to get updates and the 2019 toolkit when it launches in February. Check out the 2018 toolkit here.
Host an event or volunteer day
Kick it up a notch by hosting a local World Water Day happy hour, project tour or volunteer day during March. Leverage the campaign to connect your community to tangible ways they can support water awareness and stewardship in their backyard and across the state. We’ll promote public events online here and through our network of outreach partners.
Write an op-ed for your newspaper
Help us reach new audiences by working with local news outlets to place timely stories, op-eds and letters to the editor elevating the conversation around water during the month of March. These stories can then be shared through our network of outreach partners to extend their reach and lift up diverse community perspectives on the urgency to preserve this precious resource.
Support water awareness as a sponsor
Your sponsorship of the Oregon World Water Day campaign will help us engage people across the state in sharing what water means to their daily lives, building momentum for water protections critical to a sustainable economy and healthy communities. Sponsors will be recognized in campaign emails, posters and at oregonworldwaterday.org. Contact kevink[at]oeconline.org for sponsorship levels and benefits.
