|International Climate Stewardship Conference is June 29-30|
There's a world of experience coming to North Dakota this summer. The International Climate Stewardship Solutions Conference will be in Bismarck Monday, June 29, and Tuesday, June 30, will increase public understanding in the Northern Plains region of the opportunities and benefits of addressing climate change.
The conference is being organized by the Great Plains Institute and the Prairie Climate Stewardship Network in partnership with Great Plains Energy Corridor, Bismarck State College, and The Climate Group, an international business-oriented organization founded by former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.
This conference builds on the success of last year's "Prairie Climate Stewardship Conference." This year's conference will take the same proactive and constructive approach, but shift the emphasis to international examples of strategies, policies and technologies in other countries that have been effective in reducing greenhouse gas emissions AND achieving real benefits to key economic sectors.
The conference will be held at Bismarck State College in the Sydney J. Lee Auditorium, Schafer Hall. Hotel blocks are being reserved and some discounted dorm-style accommodations are being arranged.
