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.

Tune into this edition of The Current Webinar Series as we discuss new research and programming aiming at building human capital in conservation and watershed work.

Featured Speakers:

  • Clare Lindahl, CEO, Soil and Water Conservation Society: “Results from New Poll offer Boots-on-the-Ground Insight on Improving the Nation’s Conservation Delivery System”
  • Jenny Seifert, Watershed Outreach Specialist, University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension: “Why Human Capital Matters for Clean Water, and How a New Collaborative is Building It”
