Talking on water
Join us June 30 for Common Ground discussion on the moment, movement, and momentum that is the Cuyahoga River
The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District is joining dozens of other organizations to host a Common Ground conversation on June 30, this one focused specifically the role clean water plays in your environment. We invite you to participate.
The Cuyahoga River’s polluted history represents an era of environmental neglect. During our Common Ground discussion and tour presented by The Cleveland Foundation, we will reflect on Cleveland’s influence on improving water quality in our region and across the nation. Our political past shaped how water flows through our urban environment today. And in this 50th anniversary year of the 1969 Cuyahoga River fire that changed history, envision what an equitable water future could be for the next 50 years.
The Common Ground setting includes a walking tour of the Westerly Wastewater Treatment Plant, followed by brunch and a community conversation focused on three themes: “My environment was… My environment is… My environment will be…”
Common Ground is a day of community conversation. United by a common question, all Common Ground conversations have the same goal: to create spaces where meaningful connections are made and purposeful actions begin.
