Additional resources are now available on the campaign website, deadline is extended for video contest
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is encouraging everyone in the water sector to join the growing number of utilities, WEF Member Associations, and other water organizations who are using the WATER’S WORTH IT campaign to help raise awareness about the value and importance of water.
To support this call to action, WEF has added new resources to www.WatersWorthIt.org
Launched to the U.S. water sector on March 22, 2012, WATER’S WORTH IT is an on-going, broad-based public awareness campaign that will help to answer the question about how our actions, attitudes, and the things we most value are so closely connected with water. Everyone, from water professionals to the general public, is encouraged to visit the campaign website, take the WATER’S WORTH IT pledge, and join this coordinated effort to raise awareness about the value and importance of water.
“Reaction to the campaign has been overwhelmingly positive and many are finding creative ways to incorporate the campaign into existing or new outreach efforts,” said WEF Executive Director Jeff Eger. “A number of our Member Associations have incorporated WATER’S WORTH IT into their websites and annual conferences while some utilities have included the tagline on their truck decals and postal stamps. Since the campaign is designed to either complement existing public information materials or stand on its own, the sky’s the limit on how it can be used.”
WEF is encouraging the water sector to take advantage of the free, customizable materials available in the campaign’s online toolkit
Your Voice…WATER’S WORTH IT!
To further encourage utilities and Member Associations to use the campaign and to celebrate existing efforts, WEF is holding the Your Voice: WATER’S WORTH IT video contest
