Water in the West Symposium – April 26 & 27, McNichols Civic Center Bldg, Denver

Amy Parsons
Executive Vice Chancellor of the CSU System

I invite you to join us for a conversation that will drive solutions to water challenges in Colorado, the American West, and globally.

The inaugural Water in the West Symposium, hosted by Colorado State University, is designed to provide a platform for experts, policymakers, researchers, and investors to collaborate and lead discussions around water challenges.

The Symposium will help create a roadmap for water research, innovation, education, and policy that will take place at the Water Resources Center, the first building to be constructed at the future National Western Center, a 250-acre redevelopment in north Denver.
