Your Water Futures

November 19 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

For students interested in a career or further study in a water-related practice, the future offers perhaps-unprecedented change, opportunity, and challenges. Minnesota faces a multi-billion dollar challenge from aging water infrastructure; agricultural impacts on clean water continue to be a problem; water access and equity issues continue to challenge public space agencies across the state. A changing climate vexes all of the considerations. A panel of early career professionals will discuss what they see as the future of water science, policy, and management in Minnesota.

 

3 – 4 p.m.       Come check out the We Are Water MN exhibit (R-350, Commons)
4 – 5 p.m.       Panel with Q&A (R-380, Seminar Room)
5 – 6 p.m.       Networking opportunities between panelists and students with pizza and cookies
