The Climate Change Poster Competition will feature poster presentations by students in RSOC 5650/6650, Sociology of Natural Resources and Environment. The project theme this year is the politics of climate change in the print news media.

Presenters will include graduate students from Agricultural Economics, Sociology, and Rural Sociology, as well as undergraduate students from Fisheries, Natural Resource Management, Sociology, Environmental Science, Ecological Engineering, Interdisciplinary Studies; and Professional and Public Writing, several of which are seeking minors in Nature Based Recreation, Urban Environmental Sciences, Leadership Studies, Anthropology, Rural and Community Development, and Sustainability Studies.
