Groups from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and University of Nebraska at Kearney are hosting a one-day conference for students about climate change in Nebraska.
“Nebraska Climate Conversations” is a joint venture between Sustain UNL and the student-led Sustainability Committee at UNK. The event is March 30, in the Nebraskan Student Union, on the University of Nebraska at Kearney campus. The primary focus is to involve students and community members in an open and positive discussion.

Speakers include Graham Christensen of RegeNErate Nebraska; Martha Shulski, co-author of the latest National Climate Assessment; Deb Gangwish of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association; and Lucas Sabalka of the Lincoln chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby.
Registrations for the event are due by March 24 and can be made here. Cost is $25 per person or $15 per student, and includes lunch.
