Climate Solutions for North Carolina Virtual Panel

April 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

On Tuesday, April 7, 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.
