The Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI) at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will present its Green Innovations 2012 conference on April 18-20.
The conference – “Water – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” – offers the chance for attendees to be where innovation, business and water resources meet. The event is a natural fit for EMBI, which works with public- and private-sector partners to solve environmental concerns in a sustainable manner.
Among the many highlights of the two-day symposium is a screening of Tapped, an award-winning documentary that takes a close look at the big business of bottled water. The primary screening will occur at 7:30 p.m. April 19, with an optional showing at 1:30 p.m. the same day. Both screenings will take place in the Phoenix Room of the University Union. The evening event will be preceded by a 7 p.m. groundwater panel discussion.
Other conference highlights will include tours of Renard Island, the Fox River Cleanup Facility and other area locations; as well as breakout sessions on various tracks (business, regulatory, and water and economic development); and an address from Chad Pregracke, founder of the nonprofit Living Lands &Waters organization.
