Join us for a series of free programs on how to become a Climate-Conscious member of the North Carolina community!

People living in rural and urban areas in North Carolina will both experience hazards related to climate change. How people experience the risks and threats from these hazards, however, will vary based off of where they live, which in turn will help shape their values, perspectives, and priorities with regards to climate resilience and adaptation strategies.

How might a person living in a rural area experience extreme heat, sea level rise, drought, or extreme precipitation events differently than someone living in an urban area? How might these differing experiences impact their opinions on advocacy, policy, and adaptation?

Climate-Conscious NC will explore the science and the lived experiences of the people living in rural and urban areas in our State, and hopes to turn a lens towards participatory data collection, knowledge co-creation, and finding common ground on resilience strategies and solutions that works for people living in different situations.

We hope that you will consider joining us for the length of this project: we will start with four mini-seminars, followed by a public forum, and finally a workshop on how to begin collecting weather and climate data in your own backyards! Participants who attend all events will receive a Certificate of Completion and an official CoCoRaHS Rain gauge.
