Midwest Climate Resilience Conference


Become a sponsor

Help us make this conference carbon neutral and accessible for everyone! We are hosting the Midwest Climate Resilience Conference to inspire and encourage climate adaptation and resilience in communities throughout Minnesota and the Midwest region. Sponsorships are important to help us ensure this event is accessible to everyone who wants to participate and carbon neutral for our climate. 

Your sponsorship dollars will help us keep registration costs low, provide travel scholarships to participants who would not otherwise be able to attend, support travel for event keynote speakers, and offset conference-related carbon emissions. 

Sponsoring the Midwest Climate Resilience Conference is an opportunity for your organization to receive exposure and to join other individuals, organizations, and coalitions in our community to cultivate and celebrate our collective capabilities to prepare for a changing climate.

GLISA works at the boundary between climate science and decision making, striving to enhance communities’ capacity to understand, plan for, and respond to current and future climate impacts in the Great Lakes region. It advances its mission through applied research and engagement and developing sustained, collaborative relationships with communities to expand the region's capacity to adapt to climate impacts equitably and sustainably. It is a partnership between the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, the College of Menominee Nation, and the University of Wisconsin, and has been supported since 2010 by the NOAA Climate Program Office as part of the Climate Adaptation Partnerships program (CAP, formerly known as the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments, or RISA, program).
