Description:

Twin Ports Climate Conversations (TPCC) is a monthly opportunity for community dialogue about questions of climate change. TPCC covers different topics monthly, focusing on perspectives of climate change impacts, adaptation responses, and opportunities for mitigation and resilience. Join the conversation.

In 2014 staff from multiple agencies in northern Minnesota saw the need to normalize the conversation about climate change and highlight local actions. From these humble beginnings TPCC was born. This month we will hear from current TPCC planning team members who will reflect on seven years of conversations about climate in the western Lake Superior region. This webinar will discuss the early days of TPCC, partnership and goals development, featured topics, and stakeholder engagement including survey results and future directions.

This will be a special TPCC event as we will be joining the Minnesota Climate Adaptation Partnership webinar series.
