The Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment (IN CCIA) puts global change into local perspective, helping Hoosiers understand the risks of a changing climate so they can make better decisions for the future. To further these goals, and to support increased dialogue about Indiana’s changing climate, we've developed a variety of resources for you.
Climate Conversations in the Hoosier State
Through community gatherings, professional meetings, and educational events around the state, since 2018 we've engaged over 7,300 Hoosiers in conversations about Indiana's changing climate.
Using localized information from the IN CCIA, we are talking about the range of risks facing our state depending on how quickly our climate warms. Our goal is to help Hoosiers understand the specific ways climate change affects us here at home so we can make better plans for a productive future.
Contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested in having an IN CCIA affiliate speak at your next event.

“For years, the images shown to us and the language we’ve used has made it really difficult for Hoosiers to see climate change as an urgent local issue. With the Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment, we’re changing the conversation and helping Hoosiers understand the ways a shifting climate affects our day-to-day lives.”
-- Melissa Widhalm, IN CCIA Coordinator
Lasting climate solutions will require action on a global scale, but there are many ways that individuals can help pave the way for bigger change. We’ve summarized four practical tips for how YOU can address climate change into a printable poster (right). You can also download each individual "tip card" below.
