The Minnesota Climate Adaptation Awards, presented by MCAP 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.
This year's Adaptation Awards Ceremony is presented in partnership with The Nature Conservancy in Minnesota/North Dakota/South Dakota. Special guest Dr. Katharine Hayhoe will be joining us at the event to help celebrate adaptation leadership across Minnesota.
This will be a hybrid event, hosted in-person for awardees at the Bell Museum at the University of Minnesota's St. Paul campus, and virtually over Zoom. In-person participation is invite only, but virtual participation is free and open to the public.
