Lake Superior: Natural Resources, Culture, and Climate Change Workshop
September 14, 2018 - September 15, 2018
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point will be holding a workshop on September 14th and 15th to address the affects on climate change on Lake Superior’s watershed, wildlife, tourism, recreation, agriculture systems, and the coastal communities based on and around the lake.
This workshop is designed to expand climate change literacy for current and future natural resource professionals by integrating climate science with place-based economic and cultural perspectives that resonate with learners and engage them in climate change mitigation or adaptive decision-making. By integrating scientific knowledge with economic and culturally relevant place-based research and innovative natural resources management outreach methodologies, participants will gain an understanding of climate impacts and needed adaptations in integrated natural resources management and decision-making. This culturally relevant climate literacy will provide ways and help build community leadership based on a systems approach to mitigate or adapt to climate changes.
