Virtual: Climate Solutions for North Carolina
April 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Tuesday, April 7, 2020 Wake Forest University will host a virtual panel and dialog on climate solutions for North Carolina. This event is part of Solve Climate by 2030 — webinars across 52 states highlighting state-level climate solutions. Wake Forest University is hosting the webinar for the state of North Carolina.
Given the rapidly changing educational landscape due to the COVID-19 crisis, we hope that this virtual panel will provide an opportunity for faculty members, teachers, community members, and students everywhere to connect over meaningful discussion about climate solutions for our state.
This event is targeted to college and high school-aged students, but is free and open to all who register. The Zoom link and participation information will be sent to all registrants the day before the event.
5:00-6:00 pm: Perspectives on Climate Action in North Carolina
