K-State Conference on Climate Change in the Great Plains Sept. 5

By Ben Champion

Make plans to join us for a K-State conference on climate change on Wednesday, Sept. 5,  at the K-State Student Union.


Plan to attend a conference focused on the interdisciplinary climate change research of K-State and its partners through the Central Great Plains Climate Education Partnership (CGP-CCEP) and the Kansas EPSCoR Climate Adaptation and Mitigation program.  Learn more about progress and opportunities in each of these projects through a program that will explore:

 

  • current state of climate science for the Great Plains
  • impacts, adaptation and mitigation options facing the Great Plains
  • communication and education challenges in our region


Through:

  • plenary speakers, panels and interactive sessions
  • networking opportunities for connecting to the EPSCoR and CCEP projects as well as other scholars interested in climate change at K-State


This conference will advance the K-State conversation about climate change, its impacts and our opportunities as a university and higher education community for working in this area.  In particular, the conference is organized to help forge new relationships and identify new directions for K-State’s and our region’s efforts related to climate change.

This conference will take place the day before the annual K-State sustainability conference, Sustaining Kansas: The 2012 Kansas Higher Education Sustainability Conference on Sept. 6.  Registration for both events will open through the Division of Continuing Education on or around Aug. 1.
