HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut residents will have an opportunity to help shape the state’s strategy for addressing climate change for the next three decades.

The Governor’s Council on Climate Change is holding its second round of stakeholder events Tuesday evening at 10 locations across the state.

The main location for discussions will be the Hartford Public Library. Participants at satellite locations can view the Hartford presentation via a video link and hold discussions. The satellite locations will be in Bridgeport, Goshen, Groton, Killingly, Middletown, New Haven, Norwalk, Waterbury and Willimantic.

Nearly 200 people participated in the first round of events in May.
