Minnesota Water Resources Conference: Some Welcome Additions this Year

September 20, 2016Patrick NunnallyProgram & AnnouncementsComments Off on Minnesota Water Resources Conference: Some Welcome Additions this Year

The Minnesota Water Resources Conference brings scholars, agency staff, and practitioners together every year for a couple of days of panels, keynote talks, exhibits and poster sessions.  These are usually pretty standard, but useful, sessions, reinforcing our tendency to see water issues as matters of science and engineering.

Of course, water issues are not just matters of science and engineering, and this year’s conference has important sessions on social justice and national scale policy innovations which reflect an expanded vision of water’s importance.

These sessions are a great start; we hope they are just a start to a broader, more inclusive set of discussions.
