2023 Minnesota Climate Adaptation Awards Ceremony

Saturday, January 28, 2023
6:30 - 9:30 p.m. CT

The Minnesota Climate Adaptation Awards, presented annually since 2014, celebrate exceptional achievements in leadership, education, research, policies, and practices that improve resilience or climate justice through the development, advancement, or implementation of climate adaptation strategies. We know that celebrating success and showcasing the actions and leadership of our peers can help to accelerate adaptation across Minnesota, and beyond.

Join us on Saturday, January 28, 2023 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at The Bell Museum to recognize these leaders who are paving the way to a more climate resilient Minnesota. Participation is free, but we ask that you please register in advance.

The evening will begin with light refreshments at 6:30 p.m. The awards ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m. followed by a panel discussion with the award recipients and a keynote speaker. The ceremony will conclude at 8:30 p.m. with additional time to socialize and explore the Snow: Tiny Crystals, Global Impact Exhibit which will open earlier that day.

The 2023 Minnesota Climate Adaptation Awards are presented by MCAP in partnership with the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences and the University of Minnesota Extension
