EPA Urban Waters Federal Partnership National Training Workshop 2016

Register for the Urban Waters National Training Workshop hosted by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency on July 26-28, 2016 at the Sheraton Pentagon City in Arlington, VA.

The workshop will serve as a forum for Urban Waters Federal Partnership members and communities. The Urban Waters Federal Partnership (UWFP) is an innovative union of fourteen agencies working to provide integrated support to communities ? particularly underserved and economically distressed communities ? as they transform their local urban waters into treasured centerpieces for community revitalization.

This year, registration for this workshop is free and open to all! Space is limited and your participation is important to us, so please register now. Please also share this event invitation broadly to those in your network. You can help ensure vibrant conversation by inviting those working on natural resource conservation, environment, public health, community revitalization, economic development, and all those sectors that contribute to our shared mission.

This workshop aims to help advance the following goals:

  1. Strong Urban Waters Movement: Inspire and strengthen the urban waters movement to build and sustain robust effective partnerships across the country;
  2. Authentic Community Engagement: Strengthen our skills in working together with underserved communities to address community-based priorities and environmental justice challenges; and
  3. Partnerships on the Ground: Connect, share, and learn with other innovators about how to convene, engage, and succeed in our partnership work.
