The pandemic has made many of us more familiar and aware or our local and regional geographies. People are thinking more about the importance of where we live and our relationship with the environment. The virtual meeting is an important opportunity for students, faculty, and community members to learn more and share perspectives, concepts, tools, and information that contribute to better local and global futures.
