Climate-Conscious NC is a collaborative project run by the Museum of Life & Science, The State Climate Office of North Carolina, The Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center, SciStarter, the Durham County Sustainability Office, and the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association.

Join us for a half-hour conversation about how rural and urban communities experience and build resilience around drought.

About this Event

How might a person living in a rural area of NC experience drought differently than a person living in an urban area? How might their shared, or differing experiences affect their values, perspectives, and priorities regarding climate, resilience, and adaptation policy and strategy? Join us for a half-hour exploration with experts living and working in rural and urban areas to discuss these central themes.
