Climate Change | March 11 | RSVP


As climate changes, the ability of a region to maintain industries and practices based on environmental conditions can be compromised, leading to shortages of critical needs such as food, clean water, energy and jobs.


To mitigate these negative impacts of climate change on our world, four Big Ideas teams propose solutions that include government and community intervention as well as food security and biodegradable plastics made with greenhouse gases.
