How AWLN is Changing Atlanta Communities One Watershed at a Time

The Atlanta Watershed Learning Network is a program that promotes environmental change through the power of education. The program brings residents of Metro Atlanta together and helps them gain the knowledge and skills needed to advocate for equitable development.

Through the use of training modules and a six-month course, students learn the causes of flash flooding in urban neighborhoods and what solutions they can use to improve their local economy, larger river system and their community’s health.

See how the AWLN is equipping its members to become leaders of change for a cleaner, equitable future.

Kate Moore, Shannon Leftwich and Samanth Hurley are journalism students at the University of Georgia.
