As efforts continue to grow to protect shared water resources that are at risk from pollution, depletion, population growth and rainfall changes, international visitors will travel to Cleveland to focus on Northeast Ohio’s experience in protecting its most valuable resource: freshwater. The visitors will examine innovative financial, scientific and technical strategies for assessing, monitoring and conserving water resources. The trip will include meetings and discussions that take place with a variety of local officials, advocates from non-governmental organizations, scientists, and policy experts.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at email@example.com or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
