Waterkeeper United the Stories of Local Chapters

During their annual SPLASH Series, Waterkeeper Alliance puts on local events that build community around waterways. With Gather Voices, Waterkeeper empowered local chapters to capture video stories from their SPLASH events, collecting 35 videos from over dozens of chapters.


Gather Voices made it easy to build community through storytelling — staff and volunteers could contribute their stories using their mobile camera and the Gather Voices app.


No need to wait for a video teams to deliver footage — staff at the headquarters could access video from local chapters in real-time.


With more footage coming in from local events, Waterkeeper shared more videos, with some earning 20,000+ views on social media.
