What kind of future do we want? #Yahara2070 Social Media Blitz Results

In the spirit of experimentation and generating public discussion about the future, we held a #Yahara2070 social media blitz April 20-22 to see what kind of ideas were out there for a desirable future for the Yahara Watershed. We got great help from the local community, which both spread the word and shared ideas.

Check out the story we Storified about the community’s response. (Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t give us the capability to embed this link.)

Yahara 2070 is the WSC project’s set of scenarios about the future of the Yahara Watershed. They are intended to help motivate public discussion about how we can build a resilient future.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the blitz!
