About this event

We are looking forward to hosting you for the first of two main climate change events where climate change leaders will share the compelling evidence of climate change and how it will impact our area. Local speakers from industry and community groups will then tell us about critical climate change concepts, what is already being done about climate change and speak to some of the tremendous local initiatives already underway. There will also be a discussion panel where our speakers will field any questions that you may have. If you have any questions that you would like addressed, please send them to
