What’s Your Water Why?

As we face a pivotal moment for water in the West, Oregonians across the state are building a collective voice for our water resources. On March 22, help us celebrate World Water Day by sharing why water matters to your life, livelihood and the world around us. When you share your #MyWaterWhy with the world, you stand up for water and our future as a healthy and resilient state.

Plus, when you speak up for Oregon’s waters, you might win you a chance to stand up on them! Everyone who shares their #MyWaterWhy at oregonworldwaterday.org will be entered for a chance to win a stand up paddleboard and other prizes.

Don’t think we’re not getting in on the fun! OEC staff have a lot to say about why water matters to their lives:

Erin Kane, Director of Philanthropy

Amid the hustle and bustle of urban living, there is nothing more soothing at the end of the day than the wide open space of the river. #MyWaterWhy

 

Jana Gastellum, Climate Program Director

I go to water for both solace during times of deep grief as well as times of great joy and celebration. I’m grateful to the generations who came before me, who set aside protected areas, for the defenders of water quality today and tomorrow. #WaterIsLife #MyWaterWhy

 

Andrea Durbin, Executive Director

Because I want healthy rivers for my kids and future generations of Oregonians. Because rivers and bodies of water are nature’s playground. #MyWaterWhy

 

Stacey Dalgaard, Water Outreach Director

Because we can do more with so much less. And everyone deserves to drink water from their tap or eat fish from our rivers without fear. Everything we love depends on water. #MyWaterWhy

 

Chris Hagerbaumer, Deputy Director

Because water is both beautiful and vitally important. #MyWaterWhy

 

Join us in celebrating World Water Day this March by sharing your #MyWaterWhy at oregonworldwaterday.org and on social media to help elevate what’s important for Oregon today and future generations.

#MYWATERWHY

Help build a collective voice for Oregon’s water resources. Join Oregonians from across the state as we celebrate our common interest in preserving the health of our rivers and drinking water for Oregon today and future generations.

Building Climate Resilience with Better Buildings

Gazing at the downtown skyline of Portland? Rushing through PDX to catch a flight? Lost in the Silicon Forest? You probably aren’t thinking about how to reduce climate emissions. But Oregon’s large office, high-tech and public buildings are one of Oregon’s best opportunities to meet our climate goals by addressing our second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s because the overall “carbon footprint” of
