MILWAUKEE — Marquette University Law School will host “Water Policy in the Chicago Megacity: Past, Present, and Future,” a virtual conference presented in partnership with Current’s Chicago Water Week 2021, Thursday, Oct. 14, from 9 a.m. until noon.
The conference will focus on the past, present, and future of water policy in the “Chicago Megacity”—the region stretching from the Milwaukee area, across metropolitan Chicago, and into northwest Indiana. “Water Policy in the Chicago Megacity” builds on past Marquette Law School conferences about the Chicago Megacity, across a range of issues including water, transportation, education, and economic development.
Regional experts will discuss:
Current was launched in partnership with the City of Chicago, the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, World Business Chicago, and the region’s research universities. It exists to be a catalyst for cleaner water by monitoring and evaluating new ideas and technology in water management. It also builds partnerships among individuals, government, nonprofits, businesses, and researchers who are willing to take rational risks to try out new solutions and strengthen the blue economy through events and outreach that help to build a strong and coherent network of water leaders.
Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars, conferences on issues of public significance, and the work of its Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education, Marquette Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
