Water is a common theme in scholarship across the UW-Madison campus, where more than 100 faculty and staff are involved in water-related research. But what, exactly, everyone is up to and how might they inform one another’s work?
At Water@UW-Madison – A Wisconsin Idea Symposium, we will try to gather this water-rich research into a common pool, where 50 UW-Madison faculty spanning biological, physical, social sciences, arts, and humanities will briefly highlight their scholarly work. . The event is free and open to the public.
Talks will cover a remarkable diversity of topics – the global carbon cycle, agricultural runoff, groundwater protection, aquatic insects, water as a human right, and much, much more. A detailed agenda for the symposium can be found here. Refreshments will be served. The symposium will close with a panel discussion.
A key goal of the symposium is to improve communication among water scholars from all corners of the UW-Madison campus, and to build stronger connections with non-governmental organizations, elected officials, agency staff, consultants, and concerned citizens.
