SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Scientists, students and others will offer tips on how to get young people engaged in discussions about global climate change during a special forum in Shepherdstown.

The National Conservation Training Center is hosting the Thursday night discussion as part of its monthly lecture series on conservation.

Organizers say young people's lives, homes and career choices will be affected by the coming changes so it's important to engage them now.

The panelists include senior scientist David Blockstein of the National Council for Science and the Environment, and director Lois Johnson Mea of the Green School Alliance's Student Climate & Conservation Congress.

The presentation is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required.
