The Northern Forest Center has announced the next webinar in their Building the New Forest Future series, Ensuring Climate Resilience, which will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 17 from noon to 1:30 p.m. Expert panelists will examine what communities can do today to ready themselves for environmental changes. Registration is free, but is required in order to participate in the webinar.
About the webinar:
Every community faces different pressures when it comes to our uncertain climate future. From flooding and drought to an influx of climate migrants, we will hear about ways communities can plan and prepare to face these changes. We will hear from communities that have already done this preparation and organizations that are leading the way. Speakers to be announced.
Interested parties may register online at this link.
The goal for the entire webinar series is to amplify stories, practices, and lessons from rural community development in the Northern Forest. Intended for community leaders, funders, and policymakers, it will provide inspiration and practical guidance for fostering thriving rural communities. Mark your calendar for the upcoming webinars, which begin at 12 p.m. (Eastern) and last 90 minutes, including time for presentation and Q&A:
