Climate Series

The Collider will host the second in its two-part panel series focusing on the fourth National Climate Assessment on Thursday, Feb. 21, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. The discussion will identify some of the impacts climate change is having on cities and highlight the importance of conservancy in creating and maintaining climate resilience.

“In our January panel session, we heard an overview and insights from world-class scientists and authors behind the fourth National Climate Assessment,” says Megan Robinson, Chief Operating Officer at The Collider. “In our February session, we will hear from experts who are translating science within the assessment into actionable intelligence for smart city development and land conservation efforts.”

Experts from the North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies, NEMAC+FernLeaf and the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy — including Tom Maycock, Jess Laggis, Karin Rogers and Matt Hutchins — will be among the panelists.
