A public forum to discuss climate change will be held tonight at the Depot in downtown Duluth.

The event begins with a resource fair at 6:15 p.m., followed by the forum - or "convening" - from 6:45-9:15 p.m. It's hosted by Climate Generation: A Will Steger Legacy (formerly the Will Steger Foundation) and the University of Minnesota Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships.

"In response to the urgent need for increased awareness of local climate change impacts and tangible, community-based solutions, Climate Generation has launched a two-year public education project, ' Climate Minnesota: Local Stories, Community Solutions ,'" organizers said in a news release. "A core component of this effort is a series of 12 local convenings across the state that connect Greater Minnesota communities to the climate change impacts, solutions and adaptations that are happening now."

Tonight's event will include information on the current and future effects of climate change on Northeastern Minnesota, along with discussion of solutions being proposed to address climate change.

Scheduled guest speakers include Duluth Mayor Don Ness and University of Minnesota Extension climatologist Mark Seeley. The event is free and open to the public.
