Community Environmental Forum

The Nelson Institute Community Environmental Forum brings together speakers and audience members from all segments of the community -- businesses, state and local government, non-profit organizations, academia and others -- to learn about and discuss some of the most pressing issues facing the environment of Wisconsin, Dane County, and Madison. Our goal is to facilitate positive, productive and insightful interactions among this broad array of interests and UW-Madison students and faculty during each series.

The New Normal:
What does climate change mean for Madison?

Join the Nelson Institute, community leaders and climate experts for a forum on climate change, where attendees will explore the impact climate change is having on the Madison area and what is being done to mitigate the causes. From the shorter periods of ice cover on the lakes to the flooding that has taken place in recent years, participants will discuss the challenges climate change has presented as well as what adaptations are needed to increase resiliency in these changing times. Participants will also learn more about renewable energy initiatives, vulnerability assessments and other ways that the city and county are preparing Madison and its residents for the future.
