UnTapped: Making a Difference in California Water Policy
WELL is currently recruiting for our 7th cohort. UnTapped is a selective, six-month program for local elected leaders that helps participants make an impact on California water policy while addressing individual community water challenges. The UnTapped program creates an opportunity for local leaders to engage with water issues by exploring governance, infrastructure, finance, the water-energy nexus, and the impact of climate change on water supply and water quality.
UnTapped sessions currently follow a hybrid model, with four in-person meetings at various watersheds throughout California and four online sessions. Content includes a discussion with water professionals and skill-based exercises that help participants ask better public policy questions and strengthen public speaking and relational skills.
