Climate Carnival: Facts and Hope

Local Activists, parents, policymakers, children of all ages, and anyone concerned about climate change will learn how they can make a difference for the community and the planet, at the Climate Carnival . The Carnival features workshops, short films and TED-like talks, 30 educational booths, eco-friendly vendors and organizations, and wild nature walks. There will be live music by the Raging Grannies, Lobo Marino, and Grand Shell Game, artists, food trucks and brews. The day culminates in an after-party with continued music.

“It will be a day of hope and connection, something we have been missing in our culture.  Time to think about the planet, abundance and positive steps we can each take to create a sustainable existence,” said Abundance NC executive director Tami Schwerin.

To kick off the Carnival please join us on Friday night, May 12 for Amuse Bouche, a festive panel discussion with four outstanding professionals who represent a holistic view of the current climate situation. WUNC’s Frank Stasio will moderate a discussion with WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel, University of Chicago scientist Seth Darling, National Climate Justice Organizer Nakisa Glover, and Director of Climate Communication Susan Hassol.  Fair Game Distillery will be open and appetizers provided by Pittsboro Roadhouse.
