State of the Climate 2020

Thurs. Nov. 12

Location: Online

Please join us online November 12th, 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM (EST), for a special 12-hour Giving Day in support of clean air and climate solutions in North Carolina. Check in with us at the top of each hour for interactive activities such as interest polls, give-a-ways, panel discussions, and more. Follow Clean Air Carolina staff members monitoring air quality in different parts of the state and be sure to RSVP for our finale event, a virtual panel discussion “State of the Climate: A Candid Conversation on Climate Change in North Carolina”.


Fri. Dec. 4, 5-8pm

Location: Charlotte

Hosted by Sustain Charlotte, an entity that UNC Charlotte is a member of. Using wayfinding signs, this initiative encourages residents and visitors to walk, rather than drive to destinations in their area. #WalkCLT is powered by OrthoCarolina and raises awareness of the role that walking can play as a mode of transportation and the many social, environmental, and economic benefits walking generates for ourselves and our community. More information can be found here.

Note: Fall plans are in the works; see Campus Sustainability Week 2019 for examples.
