PBS North Carolina, NC Science Festival and The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences proudly present a screening and panel discussion of the second season of the State of Change series. 

This hybrid event will take place in person and virtually on Thursday, April 20, at 7:00pm EDT. A panel discussion with scientists and journalists from around the state will take place after the screening. They will provide an up-close look at climate change issues and answer questions in-person and via the virtual chat. Pulitzer Center grantee Frank Graff will moderate the discussion.

PBS North Carolina launched the State of Change project to personalize the impact of climate change, provide details about the science of the challenges, share solutions to combat the issues and develop resiliency to adapt to it. The project is part of the Pulitzer Center's nationwide Connected Coastlines reporting initiative. 

State of Change: Natural Solutions premiers on PBS North Carolina this April with stories of North Carolinians across the state who have responded to the challenges of climate change in new and innovative ways.
