| This prestigious conference is brought to you by AquAlliance and will be held on Thursday, November 29th and Friday, November 30th at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Chico.
The conference can accommodate 300 people and is tailored to reach policy makers, activists, academics, agencies, and the interested public. The conference will provide valuable historical, scientific, legal, political, and visionary information regarding current and planned threats to the Sacramento River and the Delta's ecosystems, aquatic and terrestrial species, economies, and communities. It will also provide specific scenarios in which these vital waters can be sustained into the future.
Water for Seven Generations will review California's short, 160-year history in which it developed massive water supplies that propelled its economy into the global top ten, but with devastating environmental consequences. Professionals and novices will have a valuable opportunity to consider what brought the state to such a precarious and unsustainable position and what credible and economically viable possibilities exist that could move our collective thinking and behavior toward a Seven Generations reality.
November 29th will cover surface water and includes panels or sections that will cover History, Watersheds of Origin, Rivers, the Central Valley and State Water Projects, Species, and Economics. A no host bar/reception and poster session will take place after the speakers conclude.
November 30th will cover ground water and the future. Sections or panels will cover History, Law, Science, and Present Conditions. A vision for the future will close the conference.
