The Flint water crisis – for all of the pain it has brought the people of Michigan – has thankfully raised awareness of just how precious water really is. Michigan is surrounded by almost twenty percent of Earth’s freshwater. As residents of this state, we have an urgent obligation – to all of humanity – to do what we can to protect this vital life-giving resource. Policy makers, government leaders, and business owners and managers must work together to overcome the pressing concerns associated with water management in the 21st century.
To continue building awareness of this important topic, the Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum (SMSBF) will hold a must-see event on water management. “Policy and Commerce: Water Management Solutions in the Great Lakes Region” will be held at the MSU Detroit Center on September 29th from 9:00 am to Noon.
Environment professionals, policy advisors and makers, city department leaders, and environmental engineering professionals will especially enjoy this event.
If you’re interested in advancing the sustainability movement, you will find this event engaging and thought-provoking. Join SMSBF and “connect, discover and learn” with other like-minded people. Come to a deeper understanding of some of the water policy and commercial solutions that will help ensure our greatest resource – clean, fresh water – is available to every resident of Michigan, poor and rich alike, from now on.
