The purpose of this symposium is to educate and bring awareness to the impacts of climate change in North Texas and discuss how we, as North Texans, can address and mitigate those impacts. Speakers include Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, who will be giving the Introduction, State Climatologist Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon who will be sharing his knowledge on climate change impacts and solutions in the keynote address, and a variety of panelists to cover topics such as Resilience/Urban Planning/ Infrastructure, Climate and Environmental Justice, and Climate Change and the Local Economy. Stick around for Happy Hour, hosted by ELS, immediately following the symposium for a chance to network with the speakers and other guests.
