Building Human Capital in Conservation and Water Network – North Central Region Water Network Webinar
November 10, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
People are the ultimate driver of change. This is no exception when it comes to achieving clean water and conservation goals in the Midwest. It is the skills, decisions, and networks of people that will determine whether we collectively move the needle in reducing nutrient loads, mitigating harmful algal blooms, and reducing the size of the hypoxic zone in the Gulf of Mexico. Human capital, or an individual’s skills and confidence to perform their job, is a critical ingredient of the power of people. Yet, in watershed management, it is a limiting and often overlooked resource.
