A limited number of tickets for the general public are now available for the next MinnPost Social, which is planned for 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at Elsie’s in Minneapolis.

In Minnesota, talking about “the environment” is often synonymous with talking about water, a resource central to the state’s economy — and its identity. It’s also at the heart of many of the state’s most critical debates: over agriculture, copper-nickel mining and oil pipelines. MinnPost reporter Walker Orenstein will take a look at these and other issues — including global warming and energy policy.

This lively Q&A session is part of our MinnPost Social event series, presented by RBC Wealth Management and Great River Energy, in which MinnPost journalists share insights with audience members in a casual atmosphere that includes a cash bar and light appetizers.

Tickets for the general public are $10 each.
