The 11th annual Northwest Climate Conference, which in the normal course of things would have taken place in October, 2020, has been moved to Tuesday, April 6, through Thursday, April 9.  It has also been moved online.

The conference brings together more than 500 researchers and practitioners from around the region to discuss scientific results, challenges and solutions related to the impacts of climate on people, natural resources and infrastructure in the Northwest. The conference also provides a forum for presenting emerging policy and management goals, as well as information needs related to regional climate impacts and adaptation. Conference participants include policy- and decision-makers, resource managers and scientists from academia, public agencies, sovereign tribal nations, non-governmental organizations and the private sector.  The University of Washington’s Climate Impacts Group is the primary sponsor.

For now, simply mark your calendars for the premier opportunity to learn about online climate research and policy initiatives.  Watch this space or monitor the conference website for updates and registration information when it becomes available.

We are excited to share that the 11th annual Northwest Climate Conference will be held virtually Tuesday, April 6 — Thursday, April 8, 2021. Originally scheduled for October 2020, but delayed due to COVID-19, this will be the first NW Climate Conference to be held entirely online. Please mark your calendars for the conference and stay tuned for registration information.
