This forum was held on the 7th November 2015 at the Alexandra Community Hall - 108 people attended and the goal was to host a discussion evening that would more closely link current climate change research to the needs of a small community, such as Central Otago, and to raise community awareness of the latest outcomes of climate change research. Thanks to the Deep South National Science Challenge and Rhian Salmon for being the primary sponsors of the event, as well as Wanaka Wastebusters and the Otago Polytechnic Cromwell campus for their additional sponsorship of the event. In addition, we must thank Greg Bodeker and his team at Bodeker Scientific and MAD4CO, Amy Scott for chairing the event, Ollie Yeoman for his talk, the Alexandra Dunstan Lions Club for catering, Bruce Potter for capturing the event through his drawings and finally, thank you to all the attendees for sharing their thoughts and ideas in such a generous way and for giving up a Saturday night to participate in the discussion. Without you, we would not have had an event.
