Dear Sponsor,

We need your help.  Climate change in the Adirondacks is affecting our forests, waterways, economies, and communities; and how we respond to these changes will determine the region’s economic and environmental viability in the years to come. As a result, North Country Climate Reality (NCCR) is inviting all communities to learn, plan and network in preparation for climate change’s growing impacts on the Adirondacks. On October 27, 2018, NCCR is holding the first Adirondack Communities: Planning for and Responding to Climate Change conference at the Silver Bay Association, Silver Bay, NY 12874; co-sponsored by SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury.

Adirondack Communities: Planning for and Responding to Climate Change is a unique event; a one time opportunity for local communities and businesses to come together to address climate change in a very practical sense. It’s not a debate, but will provide (1) climate change information and impacts; (2) proactive solutions for local town governments; and (3) actions for all community members.

Our speakers will include local politicians, researchers, state and local government representatives, and residents. Sponsor funding will help underwrite this important conference by making registration costs feasible for community members of all socioeconomic levels.
