Program areas at Waterkeeper Alliance

All other programs: the remainder of our programs includes promoting the Waterkeeper method of advocacy and issues of common concern to Waterkeeper groups through digital communications, print publications, and other media; licensing new Waterkeeper groups; protecting the trademarked Waterkeeper family of names; advocating for stronger environmental regulations, including legislation such as the clean water restoration act; and utilizing events and public outreach campaigns to increase awareness for the Waterkeeper movement, threats to clean water, and healthy ecosystems. A significant area of advocacy is Waterkeeper Alliance's clean and safe energy campaign. The campaign's focus is to help drive the shift away from fossil fuels as our primary energy source. Waterkeeper Alliance engages in local, national, and international efforts built around legal advocacy, grassroots mobilization, and aggressive media attention and public education toward a fossil fuel-free future.
