The final of three online breakfast presentations featured Kirsten Shead and Brenda Coley, Co-Executive Directors of Milwaukee Water Commons. The two spoke about their mission-driven work to help catalyze Milwaukee as a true model Water City—a place where all residents have a stake in the health of their waters and share in both stewardship and benefit alike. This online event was free and open to the public.
The theme of our Fall 2020 Environmental Breakfast Series was Steps to Transformative Change, and we explored how Wisconsin leaders are moving beyond incrementalism to transformational action at the intersections of climate, public health, and environmental justice. These breakfast conversations are designed to foster discussion and peer learning among experts, practitioners, and climate-concerned citizens regarding local solutions to global environmental challenges. These visionary virtual discussions build a collective sense of purpose, knowledge, and action as we face the many challenges of our time. See our archive of previous series presentations here.
