Forest + River 2023

We are super excited for the Wisconsin Idea Seminar’s FOREST + RIVER experience (May 15-19, 2023)!

Since its inception in 1985 the Wisconsin Idea Seminar bus departs from Madison to meet diverse folks from Wisconsin, to see the Wisconsin Idea expressed in different contexts, and to see the places that many of our UW-Madison students call home.

Seminar participants meet people across the state who are deeply committed to the place where they live and work, who are fundamentally motivated  by ideas of relationship, reciprocity, and responsibility to people, land, and water.

Join us!

We are already sketching out our itinerary for 2023, so we encourage eligible members of the UW-Madison community apply now.
