About the International Environmental Communication Association: The IECA is a professional nexus of practitioners, teachers, students, artists, and organizations engaged in research and action to find more ethical and effective ways to communicate about environmental concerns in order to move society towards sustainability. Our mission is to foster effective and inspiring communication that alleviates environmental issues and conflicts, and solves the problems that cause them. And here are some sample member benefits.

About Fresno State and the California Water Institute:  Partnering with industry and government agencies, Fresno State incorporates new technologies — satellite, infrared and computer — into its applied water research. Faculty, students and staff study water quality, conservation, delivery systems, supply development, recycling and drought-tolerant crops. The campus houses the Center for Irrigation Technology, the International Center for Water Technology and the Water and Energy Technology Center. The University also is a partner in Blue Tech Valley — an ambitious initiative to create a Silicon Valley-like hub of water research and development.
