Immerse 2021 Virtual Benefit – May 13, 2021 7 p.m.
Big problems demand big solutions. Despite spending $2 trillion over the last 60 years, more than half of America’s rivers remain impaired under the Clean Water Act. How we are managing water isn’t working, and that has massive implications for the resiliency of our world. After nearly 40 years, The Freshwater Trust (TFT) knows what our sector is missing to accelerate the pace and scale by which we fix freshwater ecosystems. Our rivers and aquifers need meaningful, lasting solutions that are data-driven, holistic, strategic and targeted. And most importantly, these strategies are needed at the basin scale. At Immerse 2021, a virtual benefit for TFT, you’ll have the behind-the-scenes opportunity to immerse yourself in TFT’s analytical approach and data-driven work to fundamentally change how all rivers are fixed. You’ll hear about the current state of the organization and meet some of TFT’s brilliant staff working on this big, hairy problem. Importantly, you’ll play a fundamental role in helping us solve it.
