Climate change is impacting all of us in a variety of ways. We all need to work together to limit further impacts and find sustainable solutions. If you are interested in reducing the effects of climate change and the search for solutions, join the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science Climate Leaders Program for Cross-College Climate Conversation. You'll learn how multiple colleges at NC State are approaching climate change issues. You'll also get opportunities to network with other students and faculty interested in climate change and be part of a solutions conversation. Six guests will participate in a panel discussion. They are:

  • Matt Bertone, director of the Plant Disease and Insect Clinic.
  • Jorge Mari, a professor in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
  • Kirsten Paige, assistant teaching professor in the Department of Performing Arts and Technology.
  • BaoBao Chen, Tim Cole and Airileke Ingram, Small Island Big Song members.

Refreshments will be available.

Small Island Big Song will join filmmakers, oceanographers, scientists and artists at NC State for a slate of extraordinary events from April 8-12. This collective of Indigenous musicians comes from island nations in the Pacific and Indian oceans — Taiwan, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Madagascar, Mauritius and Easter Island (Chile) — where they are on the front lines of climate change. The week of events will come to a celebratory close when Small Island Big Song performs in Stewart Theatre on Friday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m.
