Event Navigation

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 precipitation.

About this Event

How might a person living in an urban area experience extreme precipitation differently than a person living in a rural area? How might these experiences shape their values, perspectives, and priorities regarding climate, mitigation, and resilience policies and strategy? Join us for a half-hour conversation as our panelists explore these central questions, and offer their own perspectives on strategy and solutions.
