Tribal Climate Workshop

 

Registration is now open for the Tribal Climate workshop! The University of Michigan’s Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering and at the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments (GLISA) office has partnered with Inter-tribal Council of Michigan to facilitate this climate change discussion with Michigan Tribes.

This is a gathering of tribal staff to share climate vulnerability assessment and adaptation planning strategies, explore adaptation planning tools for extreme precipitation events, and discuss the impacts of climate change on the role of tribal women as educators and caretakers of the water. Here we hope to share stories of climate change observations, struggles after extreme weather events, and adaptation strategies. The workshop will be held at the Bay Mills Community College (west campus building) along the shores of Lake Superior.
