Overview

In Water Stewardship: A 30 Day Program to Protect and Conserve Our Water Resources... One Drop at a Time, environmental behavior change pioneer David Gershon uses his time-tested empowerment methodology to empower readers to take an active role in improving the quality and availability of one of our most precious resources. This immensely readable illustrated handbook guides readers through 32 behavior change actions and action plans for each of three topics: water quality, water conservation and community volunteering/advocacy. Employing Gershon's acclaimed EcoTeam model--which has helped over 250,000 people around the world reduce their environmental footprint by 25%--Water Stewardship gives readers the concrete tools they need to make a meaningful difference on water preservation and conservation. This book will also be of interest to any watershed organization or local government involved in watershed protection as it provides an effective and scalable program for reducing household non-point source pollution. Water Stewardship has the power to move citizens beyond awareness to behavior change, and generate enough participation to make a measurable difference in non point source pollution in their watershed.

Meet the Author


David Gershon is the author of nine books, including the bestselling Empowerment: The Art of Creating Your Life As You Want It. The founder and CEO of Empowerment Institute, he is one of the world's leading authorities on behavior change and large-scale transformation. At the height of the Cold War, he conceived and organized, in partnership with the United Nations Children's Fund and ABC Television, one of the planet's first major global initiatives, the First Earth Run, which engaged millions of people in the passing of a symbolic torch of peace around the world. Since that time, he has addressed issues ranging from environmental behavior change to organizational talent development, from emergency preparedness to low-income neighborhood revitalization. He has lectured at Harvard, MIT, and Duke and served as an advisor to the Clinton White House and United Nations on behavior change and sustainability issues.
