Tracing Connections Between Water and Climate

Climate & Energy Series
Wednesday, March 24, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm

"Tracing Connections Between Water and Climate," features Gary Besaw (Former Tribal Chair, Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin) and Bill Davis (Senior Legal Analyst, River Alliance of Wisconsin) discussing the integral role that "systems thinking" plays in creating a bold agenda on water in Wisconsin, and how this kind of thinking relates to climate change. 

The Spring 2021 Climate & Energy Series continues to explore the ideas of the Fall 2020 Environmental Breakfast Series, Steps to Transformative Change. In the Climate & Energy Series, which now starts at noon, we will explore how Wisconsin leaders are moving beyond incrementalism to transformational action at the intersections of climate, public health, and environmental justice. These conversations are designed to foster discussion and peer learning among experts, practitioners, and climate-concerned citizens regarding local solutions to global environmental challenges. Join us for these virtual discussions to build a collective sense of purpose, knowledge, and action as we face the many challenges of our time. See our archive of previous series presentations  here
