The Community Water Resilience & Adaptation Fundhas been established to initiate an open, honest and inclusive conversation about water resilience, now and in the future.
We want to work with local communities across the South West to build a shared understanding of how our local water environments in the region provide us all with benefits, everyday.
We aim to encourage people to discuss what the resilience (or non-resilience) of local water environments might mean for them, their communities, businesses and nature over the next 10 to 20 years.
How will it work?
The Fund will develop the exchange of information and for the provision of emotional and practical inspiration, guidance, and support in light of environmental challenges. We want it to build a community of interested people.
To do so, we are developing our mobile Be Watertight Library.This will take the shape of a geodesic dome and be a welcoming space where people can learn about water resources and what they can do to be more water resilience.
The ‘library’ will travel the Westcountry, attending events and venues to raise awareness and support action-orientated discussion, learning and planning in communities, while creating opportunities for people to listen, reflect and question.
We are fundraising for our Be Watertight Library so we can take it out and about to spread inspiring conversations and share information and stories about how we can all address water-related environmental concerns.
If you are involved in a group, organisation or business, please contact [email protected] to find out how you can use our Be Watertight Library as part of your own events relating to environmental matters.
We need you
For this process to be successful, we need to include as many concerned individuals, local businesses, environmental professionals and community representatives in the discussion as possible.
We want to give everyone a voice and work together to create a shared vision for a resilient future.
