It is recommended that participants prepare for this event by reading The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where to Go from Here – by Hope Jahren. The panel event will convene panelists from Michigan and California. Both states are experiencing the effects of climate change, extreme drought and in California and extreme flooding events in Michigan. Panelists will be asked to briefly share challenges and experiences in working with communities and legislative government to develop mitigation and adaptation strategies. Following this, participants in the audience will be asked to pose questions to the panel. A free electronic version of the book will be given to the first 25 registrants in each section.
A Zoom link will be shared with attendees prior to the event.
