Nov. 12 webinar to focus on rural climate issues

The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy is hosting a webinar on Rural Climate Dialogues from 4:30-5:30 (ET) on Nov. 12. The webinar is a follow-up to a three-day intensive forum in June in Morris, Minn., that discussed risks posed by climate change and developed a shared, community-based response to changing weather patterns and extreme weather events, says the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy.

Next week's webinar includes outcomes, follow up and a participant’s perspective. Speaker are: Kyle Bozentko, Executive Director of the Jefferson Center; Natasha Mortenson, an agriculture teacher at Morris High School; and Wes Flinn and Jacob Just, Morris residents who participated in the dialogue.
