Climate Minnesota storytelling encourages easy conversation

nncnowDuluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) — A public education project focused on climate change has made its way to Duluth.

At the Climate Generation workshop, experts, community leaders and members highlighted the impacts of climate change and focused on innovate solutions used to address the problem.

Discussions included using aquaponics to reduce energy and water waste from food productions as well as storm water management using rain gardens and barrels.

Experts at the event say the climate storytelling initiative helps community members talk about changes they see happening every day.

“When people feel more confident talking about their own stories and how they’ve experienced climate change, they feel like they can talk about climate change more easily,” Jothsna Harris, Education Coordinator of The Will Steger Legacy said.

As part of the two year initiative, the workshop will be held in 12 different towns across the state.
