This September, the Rotary of Club of Milwaukee will be
hosting a delegation from Serbia as part of the Open World
Leadership Center (OWLC), of which Rotary has been a proud
partner organization since the OWLC’s inception 20 years
ago. The OWLC is an independent government agency of the
US Congress. Their Open World Program is an exchange and
partnership program designed to enhance understanding and
cooperation between the Congress, American communities
and global leaders.
OWLC currently conducts programs for delegates from the
Caucasus, Central Asia, Estonia, Kosovo, Moldova, Mongolia,
Russia, Serbia, and Ukraine. Through the program, delegates
are provided firsthand experience with American community
life, accountable government, and democratic values, while
also gaining professional knowledge from their American
hosts and counterparts.
The group from Serbia will be in Milwaukee September 27th
through October 5th to learn about Milwaukee’s wastewater
treatment systems and its management. We are excited to
partner with local companies and organizations like the Milwaukee
Metropolitan Sewage District and The Water Council
to provide a program that will show off Milwaukee’s nationally
recognized wastewater management systems.
