Sustainability Institute’s Community Resilience Symposium - Economic Focus

Western Tech College
La Crosse, WI


Globalization, climate change, and other variables will continue to cause shifts in the economy of the 7 Rivers Region.  Inevitably, some of these shifts will cause disruptive economic shock in our region.  What do current economic trends suggest about how our local economy will experience such shocks?  What economic conditions exist that will either help or prevent us from rebounding and growing in the face of disruptive change?  How can the 7 Rivers Region build our capacity for economic resilience in a way that attends to both social equity and environmental stewardship?

Joel Rogers will speak on Taking the High Road in the Driftless Region.
