The topic will be climate change at a community forum on the Brenau University campus in Gainesville on April 12.
Brenau University will partner with the University of North Georgia and the Citizens’ Climate Lobby to present Climate Change: A Common Sense Approach and Free Market Solution at the Hosch Theatre on Academy Street.
Organizers said the event will be a public, town hall-style event, and they said it should appeal to all ages, backgrounds and political affiliations. 
Speakers include Dr. Mark Farmer, professor of biology at the University of Georgia; Rev. Dr. Bill Coates, pastor of Gainesville First Baptist Church; Rev. John Cromartie, retired pastor of Cumming United Methodist Church; and Dr. Vernon Dixon, retired psychiatrist and member of Citizens Climate Lobby.
Each speaker will present a different aspect or view of climate change, with Farmer presenting recent data on the implications of changing climate, Coates and Cromartie discussing the moral and conservative aspects of climate change, and Dixon outlining a plan to encourage a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.

The forum begins at 6:30 p.m.
