ALLIANCE FOR WATER STEWARDSHIP OFFERING TWO DAYS OF TRAINING
Southern California, July 28-29
The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) will be hosting two days of training on the AWS International Water Stewardship Standard in southern California at a location to be determined July 28 and 29 (most likely to be held in the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan area).
Now is the time for California companies, consultancies, NGOs and other interested groups to promote individual water use responsibility and watershed-based collective actions to ensure Californians can continue to access quality water for business, personal and recreational needs.
AWS is a multi-stakeholder organization dedicated to enhancing water stewardship capacity, and guiding, incentivizing and differentiating responsible water use. The International Water Stewardship Standard (the “AWS Standard”) is designed to support, recognize and reward collaborative efforts to manage shared water challenges while providing a strategic framework for companies to better manage water resources and associated costs and risks.
The first day of training (Foundations of Water Stewardship) will introduce water management and sustainability professionals to the AWS water stewardship system and certain water management concepts while equipping them with the knowledge they need to implement or promote water stewardship at site and watershed levels. This will include a specific segment on stakeholder engagement. The second day of training (Advanced Training in the AWS Standard) is people implementing the AWS Standard in their operations or those interested in gaining AWS accreditation for consulting, auditing or training services.
Cost per participant will be $450 or $800 for attending both days. This includes course material, lunch and refreshments. Travel or accommodation costs are not included. Reductions are available for non-profit organizations.
Foundations of Water Stewardship and Advanced Training in the AWS Standard are based on implementation of the AWS International Water Stewardship Standard, a standard owned by the international Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS). Together these courses meet Levels 1 and 2 requirements for professionals seeking AWS accreditation as auditor, consultant or trainer.
