Focus on Sustainability: A RWBC Narrative Series
Focus on Sustainability is a series of web-based interactive narratives (movie like presentations) that discusses many of the issues we are currently facing in our region. Some of these include equity, water quality, and watershed management. These narratives include Spanish and English narration, close captioning for the hearing impaired, and linkages to the RWBC search functionality directly from the presentation. Additional information about the topics (In-depth Views) are also included in each narrative.

Student Research Curriculum:
Partnering with UCSD's Urban Studies and Planning Program, RWBC is helping to provide context and tools to educate the next generation of planners and decision makers. These students undergo an intensive 20 week course in research methods and thesis writing in which they conduct original research and write a Senior Research Thesis about issues in our region.
