Human activity is causing a climate crisis across the planet. We know it’s happening and we know why: carbon pollution, primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, is warming our planet and throwing natural systems out of balance. You don’t have to look far to see the symptoms of the crisis. Hotter temperatures, stronger storms, rising seas, and so much more are threatening the health of our families and the future we pass on to generations to come.

So what can we do? This virtual community learning opportunity will give you the latest facts and provide solutions, both individual and collective, required to move toward a sustainable future. Offered by Terri LeGrand and Janet Loew, trained Climate Reality Project Leaders. The presentation is 45 minutes, followed by questions and conversation.
This presentation is a collaboration between Reynolda, Piedmont Environmental Alliance, and the Winston-Salem Chapter of Climate Reality Project.
