Communications for sustainable development
We all live downstream
Downstream Communications provides consulting, research, editorial services, training, and planning with a focus on sustainable international development and global humanitarian response.
We all live downstream -- and upstream -- from someone else. We are each responsible to all. Downstream Communications is committed to this global community.
Downstream Communications works primarily with nonprofit organizations to craft effective communications that deliver clear, complete messages about sustainable development and humanitarian response.
We help organizations tell their stories, inform constituencies and enlist support for sustainable solutions in education, health, hunger, poverty, agriculture, environment, gender, public policy and social justice.
We deliver quick turnaround on rush assignments.
Insight, imagination and integrity are part of all Downstream work.
Downstream helps to:
- Support existing communications projects
- Conceive new projects
- Evaluate organization-wide communications efforts
- Develop new strategies and plans
- Strengthen organizational learning
- Provide consultation research, writing and editing to advance these strategies
Downstream principal Michael Haddigan brings to this work 20 years of journalism experience and 7 years with an international nonprofit. He has also worked in local community-based programs.
Downstream Communications believes in people and in the power of community
