Keynote Address: The Colorado River’s Forgotten History
On Thursday, November 15th I will give the keynote address for the Healthy Rivers Youth Water Summit. This event is a student-driven educational conference that provides an opportunity for learning, dialogue, and action on Colorado River Basin issues. In this talk, I will discuss how forgotten stories about the Colorado River Basin change the way we might think about its past and the ramifications of these fresh perspectives for decision making today and in the future. Such creative thinking is not limited to history, however; the water community needs innovative young thinkers and doers to approach challenges from new perspectives in order to chart a sustainable path forward.
