Imagine Our Future North Bay

April 19, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

On April 19, 2024, the NBWA hosted an event at Sonoma State University’s Event/Student Center, a dynamic gathering of regional leaders and partners envisioning tomorrow’s resilient watershed communities and workforce, focusing on the theme “Imagine Our Future North Bay.” We delved into California’s Water Plan Update, explored the advancement and funding of natural and built infrastructure initiatives, and fostered diverse opportunities for tomorrow’s rewarding careers in water!

The conference provided a platform for experts, decision-makers, practitioners, partners, and students to understand and discuss the substantial adaptation challenges faced by water utilities and management agencies posed by climate, technology, and societal changes.

A virtual option was provided for those who could not join in person. Stay tuned! We’ll post the video recordings here as soon as they’re ready. Keep checking back for updates!
