The annual symposium has been an integral part of the Water: Systems, Science & Society (WSSS) Graduate Certificate program since 2010. Over the years, the symposium has featured speakers and presenters from public, private, and non-governmental sectors, as well as panel discussions and networking opportunities. Speakers at the event and attendees to the event have come from across the globe, with a large number representing organizations and associations within the New England region. This event stems from the passion and interest of WSSS students and program supporters to inform peers and the public about important water issues and projects.
