Communication is key: using new media and design to convey the science and technology of low impact development
There are two themes to the presentation. The first is – if you don’t love your watershed, who will? How responsive and responsible are we going to be to the needs of the Bay and its watershed, that are so important to our quality of life, our community wellbeing and our economic vitality? The second theme relates to the fact that when it rains it is not your grandmother’s rain. Our built environment and behaviors have changed how water flows to the bay and the make-up of the material in the water. Ultimately the question become are we sufficiently personally/emotionally committed to the long-term health of the Bay and watershed to insure their long-term beauty and viability.
