They also identified benefits including reduced greenhouse gas emissions and associated public health challenges as well as the availability of new jobs and economic development opportunities across rural, urban, and suburban areas.
The meeting is open to the public. The morning and lunchtime presentations will be livestreamed. Registration is required for both.
