Considering that it can take up to 12 gallons of water to make one gallon of beer, the conservation and sustainability of our fresh water is incredibly important. Because of this, on October 4-5, people will converge on Chicago for the Fifth Great Lakes Water Conservation Conference. Within proximity to the Great Lakes and nearly 20% of the world’s fresh water supply combined with the strong brewing culture of the Great Lakes area, it is the perfect setting to hold such a conference. Created with craft brewers and policy makers in mind, the conference will discuss, among other things, water conservation, water auditing, rain water harvesting, wastewater treatment, and alternative energy installations.
Are you an expert on water conservation or brewing with the environment and water in mind? The fifth Great Lakes Water Conservation Conference is looking for presenters and speakers. If you are interested in speaking or wish to send a panel proposal, contact Lucy Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
