About the Event

What is this about?

Water is essential to life. It is also a limited resource, especially in the Arizona desert, which has seen a decades long drought. With a growing population and the ongoing drought, water policy will only continue to become a hotter topic for our state.

As Arizona’s population continues to grow, the state faces a number of challenges related to meeting the water needs of its residents and industries.

Why come to this event?

Come hear from top policy minds, learn about the state of water policy in Arizona from a variety of different perspectives, and meet other people who care about this issue.

What is Arizona Talks?

We are a nonpartisan nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing civic engagement by making valuable civil dialogue accessible to the public. We create experiences for Arizonans to learn, discuss, and connect over our country’s most challenging issues.

If you believe that civil and substantive discussion is essential to preserving a free and democratic society, please join us and support our work to continue providing a public forum for open inquiry, fact-based analysis, and vigorous, civil discussion in Arizona.
