Milwaukee 2025: Water, Jobs, and the Way Forward
Add to Calendar

Ten years ago, Marquette University Law School convened a conference titled “Milwaukee 2015: Water, Jobs, and the Way Forward.” Participants mapped a pathway for Milwaukee to emerge as a worldwide water hub. As one local leader put it: “My dream is that by 2015, when people think water, they think Milwaukee.” A decade later, we reconvene to examine how far the region has come toward achieving that goal. The conference will also look forward to the next decade and consider the next stage of the region’s development in the face of competition from other parts of the country that have the same objective.

Please join us Tuesday, November 5, 2019, for this half-day conference presented by the Law School’s Water Law and Policy Initiative.  Please note this is not a CLE program.

Tom Barrett, Mayor, City of Milwaukee
