Statewide Water Education Action Plan

A Common Agenda for Water Education’s Role in Achieving Sustainable Water for Colorado by 2050

What is the Statewide Water Education Action Plan?

The Statewide Water Education Action Plan (SWEAP) is a guide for Colorado water educators working individually and collectively to realize a set of shared outcomes that align with the “Outreach, Education and Public Engagement” goals set forth in the Colorado Water Plan. Those goals focus on ensuring Coloradans have access to accurate information and are empowered to participate in stakeholder decision-making processes.

Water education is one of eight comprehensive aspects of the Colorado Water Plan to ensure a sustainable water supply for Colorado’s growing population by 2050 in a way that respects and preserves the state’s diverse values.

SWEAP does not mandate local actions, rather addresses obstacles to a coordinated, more consistently defined approach that results in progress on a statewide level.

For more information, click on the Executive Summary or Full Plan below.  Water Education Colorado will be working to develop a more robust website for SWEAP coordination in coming months. To contact Water Education Colorado with questions about SWEAP, email scott@wateredco.org or call (303) 377-4433.
