Finger Lakes Forecast Webinar Series: Climate Disruption & Food Security

Sustainable Tompkins will be hosting a new webinar series this spring and fall. Finger Lakes Forecast will focus on how climate change will impact life in the Finger Lakes Region and what people can do for themselves and their communities to prepare. The first Finger Lakes Forecast webinar, Climate Disruption and Food Security, will take place online at 12pm EST on April 27 and include a screening of Uplifted Ithaca’s short documentary, Our Farmers in Flux: Adapting to Climate Change, followed by a panel discussion with Graham Savio, CCE-TC; Katie Hallas, Tompkins Food Future; Klaas Martens, Lakeview Organic Grain; and Chaw Chang, Stick and Stone Farm.

Five additional Finger Lakes Forecast webinars are planned in May, June, September, October, and November of this year, on the last Wednesday of each month. Planned topics include Reducing Flood Risk for Your Home, Policies to Reduce Harmful Algae Blooms in the Finger Lakes, Land Use and Renewable Energy, Public Health in a Hotter Finger Lakes, and FLX Demographic and Economic Trends. More details will be shared soon!
