Exploring Rural and Urban Perspectives on Extreme Heat
- This event has passed.
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 extreme heat events.
About this Event
How might someone living in a rural area experience extreme heat differently than someone living in an urban area? In this 30-minute mini-seminar, we’ll bring on two panelists to discuss their climate and resilience work in rural and urban areas of NC, and how they believe the similarities and differences might affect public perception, values, and support for resilience, mitigation, and adaptation strategy.
Tara Mei Smith – Executive Director, Extra Terrestrial Projects
Lauren Thie – Environmental Programs Consultant, NC Department of Health and Human Services
Diana Rashash – Area Specialized Agent, Water Quality / Waste Management, NC Cooperative Extension, Onslow County
