Next week on Thursday, April 7 and Friday, April 8 the Coastal & Heartland National Estuary Partnership is hosting the 2022 Southwest Florida Climate Summit. This year it will be held as a two-day hybrid event so people can attend virtually or in person at the Collaboratory in downtown Fort Myers.

This public event will feature innovative thinkers to exchange dialogue and ideas on expanding the region’s capacity to respond to climate challenges, and towards building increased community resiliency.

The goal is to share knowledge, showcase climate action, engage leadership across sectors, and mobilize collaboration throughout the Central & Southwest Florida region. Innovative thinkers and experts in various fields will exchange dialogue and ideas on expanding the region’s capacity to respond to climate challenges, and towards building increased community resiliency.

We get a preview from Jennifer Hecker, Executive Director of the CHNEP; and Dr. Kara Lefevre, Ornithologist and Department Chair & Associate Professor of The Water School at Florida Gulf Coast University. You can learn more and register for the summit online here.

We also meet WGCU's new Morning Edition host, Sandra Victorova and chat with former Morning Edition host, John Davis, about what's next for him at WGCU.
