EarthFest Expo 2024 Keynote Speaker Announced!

We’re thrilled to announce Dr. Heidi Roop, Director of the University of Minnesota Climate Adaptation Partnership, will join the EarthFest Expo as our keynote speaker. She is also an Assistant Professor of Climate Science and Extension Specialist at the University, and also serves as the Director for Knowledge Transfer for the NSF-funded COLDEX Science and Technology Center. Her research and Extension programs combine cutting-edge climate science and effective science communication to increase the use and integration of climate change information in decision-making at a range of scales—from city and state to national and international levels. Her climate science research takes her around the world from Antarctica to California to the shores of Lake Superior. Her recent science communication efforts were focused on her book, The Climate Action Handbook, which outlines in a highly visual format, everyday ways we can contribute to collective and individual climate solutions.
