ForumPlus, an extension of the Chesapeake Watershed Forum, is designed to provide organizations with continuous opportunities to learn, network, and inspire each other on a variety of environmental subjects through many social platforms. It aims to facilitate a continuous conversation, create partnerships between environmental groups across the watershed, and focus on information sharing.

ForumPlus creates a steady relationship between watershed groups and local governments through a variety of educational and networking events in different platforms.

ForumPlus events look like a number of different things:

  • Webcast events that are hosted through the Chesapeake Network and designed to provide information and insight on topics that are identified at the Forum and need additional in-depth analysis and ongoing dialogue.
  • Panel events hosted in different cities that are centered around diversity initiatives in the environmental field.
  • Issue debates and/or regional one day forums to bring synergy to local groups in these regions.
  • A Local Government Forum that would focus on issues that are specific to local government implementation of the WIP’s and opportunities for local watershed group engagement with local governments.
