Environmental Policy Forum Annual Symposia
The Annual Spring Environmental Law Symposium convenes environmental policymakers and experts to discuss issues of importance to the state and region. Previous symposium topics include:
2012 - "Environmental Stewardship"
Environmental stewardship is put into context via the examination of environmental law and policy initiatives throughout the state and region and the role culture, society, and belief systems play in shaping environmental law and policy.
2011 - "National Energy Security: Challenges and Opportunities for the Midwest"
Energy is one of the greatest national security challenges facing our country today. But energy is not a problem that can be addressed by the federal government acting alone. State and local governments and their citizens have a unique responsibility to shape their energy policy in a way that will advance national security. States also have an opportunity to pursue alternatives that will strengthen their own economies. Innovation and competitive solutions have the potential to build Midwestern business and create sustainable jobs for generations into the future.
2010 - "Indiana's Water Future - Crisis or Corporation?"
Water resources are vital to Indiana’s public health and well-being as well as the state’s future economic growth. This symposium focused on conflict, scarcity, and the quality of state water resources. Three panels addressed recent and developing challenges facing state and local water supplies – with an emphasis on the legal frameworks through which those supplies are managed and protected.
2009 - "Energy Law and Policy"
