Pennsylvania and Climate Change – What Does the Future Hold?

An Academic Townhall with Cindy Adams Dunn

Secretary, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources

Description

The effects of climate change are already being felt across the Pennsylvania in the form of more severe weather, flooding, changes in our forests and other ecosystems, and human health impacts. How we respond over the next decade will determine how severe those impacts become, and a key to our success will be the leaders of tomorrow – today’s college students.

Please join Secretary Dunn, Mr. Czarnecki, Mr. Newton, and other DCNR staff in a conversation about Pennsylvania’s changing climate and your role in helping to shape our future.

Learn a little about DCNR’s adaptation and mitigation efforts including conservation at a landscape level; retaining and planting forests, urban trees and stream buffers for carbon sequestration and water quality; high performance building and renewable energy use; connecting young people to the outdoors; and adapting to different demands and seasons for recreation.

We encourage students and faculty to come prepared with questions and topics for discussion, or better yet, submit them ahead of time to gczarnecki@pa.gov
