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.
