If you’d like to learn more about what has happened and what scientists predict will happen and how political leaders are or are not responding, the upcoming 2022 Southwest Florida Climate Summit scheduled for April 7 and 8 is the place to be.
You can participate in person or online during the two all-day sessions that will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is hosted by the Coastal and Heartland National Estuary Partnership.
In-person participation will cost $25 per person and will be held at The Collaboratory, 2031 Jackson St., Fort Myers. On-line participation via Zoom is free.
Guest speakers will include a mixture of academic experts from fields ranging from engineering and meteorology, water management officials, environmental managers and health officials. They will discuss the predicted effects of climate change in this part of Florida on flooding, wildlife, human health and how the places we live will be affected and what some efforts are proposed to make the region more resilient to deal with the predicted changes.
