Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals is offering a new climate change course in 2018. Applications due April 25, 2018. The new Climate Change 201 course will serve cohorts of tribes working through the entire process of developing a strategic climate change adaptation plan focusing on a particular topic. The course will take place mainly online with one in-person meeting over 1 1/2 years. They will likely limit the number of tribes participating in each cohort to between 6 and 8 in order to build group cohesion and allow sufficient time to provide feedback. If, through this application process, there is a high demand for this type of course, they will look into increasing offerings. There is no course fee. For the in-person meeting, ITEP will cover the lodging costs and per diem for two participants from each tribe. They will not cover travel costs. For more information and to apply, go to:
