Community + Watershed (CW) is the fourth of nine C3LD nested channels. Our CW channel actively curates living design information at the community and watershed scale through the “#C3LDcw” Twitter Hashtag and the Pinterest Board “Community + Watershed.” We also host the emergent Twitter Feeds: #resilientcities, #livingcities and #watershed.
