Feb. 14 & Feb. 16, 2023 — Who Owns the Water?

CourseGraphicJoin guest lecturer Bob Otwell, Ph.D. and learn about Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation’s (MCWC) original 8-year fight against Nestle including the trial, court of appeals, Supreme Court Cases, and final outcome. Find out what this case meant for the future of water, diversion bans, public water, private commodity or public good, and international trade law. Then hear from Jim Olson, the lead attorney in the 8-year case and founder of For Love of Water (FLOW), about MCWC’s second 4-year battle with Nestle, where people protested the state and Nestle’s interpretation of new water withdrawal laws and the privatization and sale of the public’s water.  Cost: $75.
