August 28, 2015
October 6-8, 2015 are the dates for the Value of Water Coalition’s Imagine a Day Without Water campaign. Designed to raise awareness of and build public support for investment in water, this is an opportunity for every organization and individual that cares about water and the systems that bring it to and from homes and businesses to stand together for our most precious resource.
Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to create their own event or content to spread the message about the importance of investing in water infrastructure. Examples of what organizations can do to participate include: invite local leaders and the press to tour a water treatment facility, work with the local mayor or city council on a proclamation or resolution, create a social media campaign, write an op-ed, and more.
This link ImagineADayWithoutWater.org offers participating organizations a central location for accessing materials to assist in the planning and production of events. Site materials include:
- 11 ideas for how to participate
- Messaging Guide
- Tips for planning a press event
- Op-Ed Template
- A toolkit for ads, with horizontal and vertical print ads, billboards and more.
This same link also includes more background on the campaign, its partners, and provides a way to sign up to become part of the campaign. Need more information on hosting an event? Please contact Abigail Gardner at email@example.com.
