Climate: Change the Conversation
Thursday, October 24, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Climate: Change the Conversation
A Community Discussion on Issues affecting us Today
Sea level rise, shifting seasons, extreme weather, coastal resilience, mitigation, and adaptation... These climate change buzzwords are common in our daily lives, but do we really understand what they mean or how they will impact our lifestyles?
While the science can be overwhelming, it doesn’t take a degree in climatology to have an opinion about something that will affect each of us in our everyday lives.
We want to hear from you! Join UF/IFAS Pinellas County Extension, USF Department of Anthropology, and the Tampa Bay Estuary Program for a community conversation about climate change. After an introductory presentation, you will participate in small group discussions about the potential effects of climate change in the Tampa Bay region. Each interactive station will highlight one local aspect of climate change and its associated impacts. Your input will help us understand your thoughts on this important issue and how we can better communicate with you about climate change.
Light refreshments will be provided.
