As WEF's key stakeholders, influencers, and ambassadors, we all have a critical role to play in advancing and communicating our new mission, vision, and goals for the future. WEF has created this Toolkit of materials to support you as ambassadors and chief storytellers of WEF’s new Strategic Plan, and ensure you feel fully equipped and empowered as you share the plan and build support and momentum behind it.

We encourage you to download the Toolkit materials and incorporate them into your conversations, social media posts, or presentations about the new Strategic Plan.

Talking Points

The Talking Points are the key messages you should use when communicating about the new Strategic Plan. These can be used in meetings, presentations, social media, and other communications to WEF members and others within the water community. Using this messaging assures we speak consistently about the plan.

Strategic Plan Maps

Here are two simple ways to present the entire WEF strategic plan at once, in one infographic image, that you can incorporate into any presentation you may be making to water sector stakeholders. Print and hand out the one-page, downloadable PDF (which also works in black and white) and/or insert one or both of the Strategic Plan Map PowerPoint slides into your next presentation for impact.

Email Signature Decals

Please consider adding one of these decals to your email signature to keep the plan top of mind, to reinforce your role within the water sector as a WEF strategic plan champion, and to encourage your water sector colleagues to share their water stories with WEF.

Be sure to link the decal to www.wef.org/wef-water-future before you go live with it as your email signature.Divider (002).jpg

Water Stories

As our Three-Year Outcome Statement says, we must "amplify the stories of water to grow, strengthen, and diversify the water community." So, ask members of the water community to share their stories with WEF. It’s a key way you can use your influence as a WEF member leader to help spread the word about both the importance of water and WEF’s new focus.

  • In conversations and presentations, encourage folks to share their “water stories.” We are especially interested in people sharing stories about how their work is helping to build the water workforce, the water community, and the circular water economy.
  • Direct people to www.wef.org/wef-water-future to share their stories. There they can see examples of other water stories and use a platform called Gather Voices to submit their own.
  • And, if you haven’t done it already, be sure to share your own water story as well!
