Forest Paths: distinguished speaker series  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Dr. David Cleaves, Former Climate Change Advisor with the U.S. Forest Service will present "Forests, people and climate change: a new 'no-normal' world."

Description: Climate change is the most compelling global issue of this and future centuries. The relationships between forests and people are being profoundly affected by the changing climate. It is introducing new challenges to natural resource management, intensifying and complicating traditional threats and stressors and presenting an increasing array of public policy issues and conflicts.

These changes are not likely to settle down into some new normal in this century. Professional resource managers will develop their careers and make contributions in a context where there will be no normal. Leaders and managers will increasingly be faced with climate change effects, emerging policies, political controversies, a rapidly developing science base and a workforce concerned and educated in sustainability and climate change issues. The next 10 years will be a critical period in defining relationships between forests and people, and how professionals in many areas help adapt those relationships in the most positive ways.

Parking will be provided at the Children's Garden-1066 Bogue St. East Lansing, MI 48823
