The Climate + Energy Project connects people, organizations, and ideas to find practical solutions that make sense for Kansas.  We are always looking for new and innovative ways to do this important work.  Lately, we've been exploring the exciting world of livestream video technology!  We're calling it CEP LIVE!  

CEP LIVE on Facebook features interviews with experts to  help people make broader connections on complex topics.  We hope these interviews help folks learn more about the issues and connect with other great organizations.   Plus, the videos are helping CEP reach broader audiences and engage the public in new ways.  

Check out some of our latest CEP LIVE interviews!  
Videos are always archived @CEPHeartland on Facebook.

As part of a series featuring our partners in the Kansas Health Foundation Health Equity Partnership Initiative, we are looking at connections between climate change and health equity concerns.  Extreme weather and climate disasters can result in stress, anxiety and depression.  Andy Martin from NAMI Kansas (National Alliance on Mental Illness) discussed some connections between mental health and climate change and the services available at NAMI.  

Irene Caudillo, President of El Centro, highlighted some connections between Latino communities and climate change, including ways Latino communities are working towards climate resilience.  Irene explained the importance of collaboration with Latino and Spanish-speaking populations here in Kansas and the need to find common ground in our communities.

This past Saturday, CEP was delighted to be part of the 12th Annual Dialog on Sustainability. Speakers shared information on a range of issues connected to climate change and health.  Several of our Kansas WEALTH partners shared their knowledge and passion with the audience.  Check out Rachel Myslivy's presentation on the Kansas WEALTH project in our latest CEP LIVE video!

The Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy, Climate + Energy Project, and partners facilitated small group discussions that gave participants a chance to dig deeper into a specific areas to focus attention, make connections, and identify ways to create forward momentum. If you couldn't make the event, we encourage you to look into this Resource Guide created by librarians at Kansas State University.

Stay tuned for more CEP LIVE interviews and events.  Do you have a great idea for a CEP LIVE event?  Let us know!  We will try to make it happen.
