2020 Water Festival Coordinators Gathering

Join us for the 2020 Water Festival Coordinators Gathering. This annual gathering brings together water festival coordinators across the state to discover strategies to improve their events. It's also an opportunity to share best practices, challenges, and lessons learned.

Spend the day collaborating with other new and experienced water festival coordinators and learning from specialists and one another. This year's workshop will focus on incorporating new Colorado Academic Standards and the Statewide Water Education Action Plan into water festival planning and curricula.  We will hear from coordinators working to increase the inclusivity and diversity of water festivals.  In the afternoon, we will have follow-up sessions from last year, including a hands-on session on how to use an Excel-based water festival scheduling tool.   Participants will also have the opportunity to use a case study protocol to apply peer learning through a participant-driven case study protocol and to share highlights from last year's festivals. 

Lunch is included. Coffee and a continental breakfast will be provided courtesy of the City of Boulder. See a draft agenda here.

Please bring the following;

  • A laptop with the Excel-based water festival scheduling tool downloaded
  • Examples of Teacher Guides, Student Workbooks, or other materials you currently distribute to festival teachers and attendees to share with participants
  • An idea of highlights from last year's festival, along with follow-up contact information to share with participants
  • The date of your water festival
  • Your own reusable coffee mug or water bottle.

This workshop will be held at the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks Building - Community Room.
