WIMMERA residents are invited to a series of public forums, focusing on the past, present and future of the changing climate in the region.
Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning community and partnerships program manager Geoff Miller encouraged anyone with an interest in climate to come along.
"We hope by attending the forums people find out more about how our climate is changing, particularly in the area."
'A Climate Journey' is part of the 'Supporting our Regions to Adapt' initiative, a three-year program providing practical support for communities to prepare for the challenges of a changing climate.
The first forum will be at Horsham's Grains Innovation Park on May 15, at 6.30pm.
The Bureau of Meteorology will present the forum, which will give insight into changes in rainfall and average temperatures in the region.
Bureau climate services manager David Jones will talk about why climate change matters, the effects and variables, and what we can do to improve our preparedness and response.
Ballarat Environment Network's Sherie Draper will also present the 'One Planet Living' approach and explain how individuals can make a difference.
Mr Miller said DELWP was committed to helping regional communities and organisations work together to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
"As well as sharing knowledge about our changing climate, people can find out how they can be involved in developing the state's climate adaptation plan," Mr Miller said.
