Updates and Projections

As you can see from our supporting and distribution partners listed here, we’ve already built a powerful coalition for a successful public education initiative. Though it’s still growing, one key partner we’re missing from the list is you and your support to help reach our funding goal for educational distribution.

What makes this educational initiative so powerful is that we’ve more than tripled the projected public reach of the program by expanding our television broadcast from 1 to 7 million potential households. See details in the Detail Summary to view our expanded broadcast television coverage. Plus, we’ve also tripled the total content from 30 minutes to over 90 minutes total time of documentary and educational films, funded in part by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office for Coastal Management under the Coastal Zone Management Act, Grant # NA16NOS4190108. We’ve also expanded our educational distribution network with over 40 educational distributors, statewide, regionally and nationally, while harnessing the curriculum development strength of educational professionals. See the compounded broadcast television, educational distribution and classroom impact on the “Impact Flow Chart PDF”.

On the production side, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve now completed filming and post-production (editing). Yep, the entire film is completed. And that means that you’ll soon be hearing about when and where the film will be released for screenings… such as the Green Lands, Blue Water conference November 28 (https://www.cias.wisc.edu/glbw2017/)

Although we’ve completed the production the film, distribution remains key to educating the public and the agricultural community about our search of sustainability. So now more than ever, the distribution of the film to the public depends heavily on your funding support, so please take a moment to fill out your tax-deductible pledge below.
