Registration is now open for the North Central Region Water Network’s Climate Intersections Conference July 12-14th in Duluth, Minnesota. The conference theme is “Taking Care of People, Water, and the Land” and will feature emergent research and key programming that can facilitate solutions for resilient and equitable agricultural systems, communities, and watersheds throughout the North Central Region and beyond.

The conference is a long-overdue and unique opportunity to gather in person with water, climate, and natural resource professionals from across the North Central region. Conversations will focus on how we, as professionals, connect with the communities in which we live and work and how we can foster equitable solutions to the ways climate change impacts our water, our work, and our way of life.

The keynote speaker will be Kyle Whyte, a Professor of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan, who presents on Wednesday, July 13th. Kyle is an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation and will discuss Indigenous peoples and climate justice and the types of relationships needed to coordinate action to adapt and mitigate climate change.
