Preserving Pathways: A Neighborhood Conversation Series
Wednesday, May 24, 2017
Over the past 50 years, much of the country’s population—and especially the Midwest—has been shifting further away from rural areas, opting for urban and suburban settings instead. This trend causes a negative ripple effect across communities and industries. As the population declines, local businesses face a reduced available workforce, funding for school districts decreases, fewer classes are offered to students, and access to quality healthcare grows restrictive.

To address these critical issues and help provide innovative solutions, UW Colleges and UW-Extension are partnering with Northern Wisconsin communities, organizations and government agencies to host Preserving Pathways: A Neighborhood Conversation Series. The series of three roundtables—held May 30, May 31 and June 1—will focus on the topics of education, healthcare and the economy.

These events are free and open to the public, all attendees must RSVP.  For event details and to RSVP visit the link below:
