Living Waters Challenge

How would you like to walk away with $10,000 at this fall’s Living Waters Rally?

Three organizations are going to have just that opportunity!

The Living Waters Challenge at #LWR16 will give delegates the opportunity to pitch creative solutions to real freshwater challenges --maybe even yours. 

Delegates will be grouped into small teams and given a freshwater challenge (designed by your submissions) to address. If one of the winning pitches is aimed at solving the freshwater challenge pitched by your organization, you will be invited to receive a $10,000 grant from Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Charitable Giving Program and an opportunity to leverage matching funds.

Teams will work together over a few hours to put together a creative pitch. Each team will have the opportunity to access a number of challenge advisors for input and expert advice. Through a pitch-off, top solutions will be identified and presented to the full LWR delegation.

If your organization has an annual operating budget less than $500,000 and you are planning to come to the Living Waters Rally this fall, then use the survey below to tell us what challenge you would like to pose to your freshwater peers!

 

THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. NO ADDITIONAL CHALLENGES CAN BE ACCEPTED.  THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE SUBMITTED!

What is the freshwater challenge that you would like to pose to a group of Canada's leading freshwater change-makers?

We know that freshwater groups and initiatives across the country are confronted with challenges in their work every day; whether its determining the best messages to reach your targeted audience or defining the best strategies to reach your desired outcomes. If you could pick the brains of 5-10 of your freshwater colleagues across the country, what 1 challenge would you pose to them to solve? Please provide as much context and detail as possible. The Living Waters Rally steering committee will select the best submissions to be workshopped live at the LWR16!
