Yo Climate Change Agents! I just pulled this information off the MN350 calendar. Unfortunately, the calendar isn't set up to allow the full description to show if it's long, so it ends in mid-sentence, but it's enough to get the drift. Although the Citizens Climate Lobby's regional conference at Macalester College, which I posted earlier, is happening at the same time, at this point I'm more inclined to attend this because of my strong interest in climate justice. On the other hand, it's a long bus ride, with two transfers, from my Phillips apartment to the Wellstone Center, so my attendance may depend on someone else from CCC or the larger EcoMinds working group (if the group actually exists by then) attending who is willing to give me a ride. If someone is willing to step forward, please let me know.
