This Year’s Theme:

Improving Our River and Our Community

Improving the Chicago River can seem a big task. But all big tasks are made up of smaller problems that we can overcome together. What can you do to improve the river for your community? Learn what students across the watershed are doing to care for the river, watch over it, and to improve it. We should all be part of the discussion as we propose solutions. This year’s Congress will allow students to have fun as they share what they know about the river and how they serve to make it better. During the Congress, students can teach workshops, attend workshops, visit exhibits, and interact with college students and many different river professionals.
