The Massachusetts Water Forum is free, but registration is mandatory since space is limited. This year's event will follow the UN's 2021 theme of Valuing Water by showcasing a number of innovative ways the Commonwealth can become more water-friendly as it moves towards very challenging times on the climate front. “Valuing Water” is an opportunity to think about how to best guarantee adequate clean water to people across all Massachusetts communities for their many needs.
The Youth Summit will utilize the "Shark Tank" model to bring creative water-friendly ideas to the fore. Students from Massachusetts and elsewhere will have the opportunity to pitch their forward-thinking approaches about ways to make their schools more water-friendly, however preference will be given for those from Massachusetts. The winner(s) will have an opportunity to present their ideas to a legislative committee at another date. If you are interested in making a pitch, or know someone who does, please contact us!
