Water ’22

It all starts here

Water Education Colorado is spearheading Water ’22, a year-long public awareness campaign and celebration of Colorado’s water that launched in January with a proclamation from Gov. Jared Polis, declaring 2022 the Year of Water.

Water ’22 is dedicated to the idea that “It all starts here.” It’s about Coloradans from all corners of the state, and all walks of life, recognizing the value of water, and growing in understanding of how water connects all people, upstream and downstream, past, present and future.



Water Education Colorado and campaign partners are planning activities throughout the state, including volunteer days, expert talks, film screenings, a student water awareness week, a statewide watershed beer competition, a book club, and much more.

The campaign highlights simple actions that anyone can take to conserve and protect Colorado water, and asks Coloradans to take the Water ’22 pledge to commit to “22 Ways to Care for Colorado Water in 2022.”
