World Cafe Conversation on Community Resilience
September 28, 2021 @ September 28, 2021 6:00 pm
On Sept. 28, Bemidji State University’s Environmental Advisory Committee will hold a “World Café Conversation on Community Resilience” to gain feedback and community input for the university’s ongoing climate resilience planning efforts.
“Bemidji State is excited to work with our communities and strengthen our relationship with the water, land and world around us,” BSU President Faith C. Hensrud said. “The university’s roots run deep in Northern Minnesota and with the help of our neighbors, I am confident that we can make the best commitment to climate resiliency and future of our shared communities.”
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the university’s American Indian Resource Center and will overview the planning process and solicit feedback for seven resilience indicators – economic opportunity, health & wellness, materials & waste, housing, energy, water and transportation.
“Our hope is to hear from individuals who are working within, affected by, or interested in each of these content areas,” Jordan Lutz, BSU’s sustainability project manager, said.
Conversations about each indicator will take place in the AIRC Gathering Room. Participants will be given the opportunity to engage with two of the seven indicators during their time together and will receive a boxed meal. Pre-registration is required.
