Auburn University is hosting the webinar, “Solve Climate by 2030: National Power Dialog and Power Dialog for the State of Alabama,” in support of the Solve Climate by 2030 project on April 7 from 6-7:30 p.m.

In an effort to inject optimism and spur action in conversations about solving the climate change challenge, on April 7, all 50 states will participate in a nationally-coordinated event. The event will consist of a nationwide webinar followed by a state-based webinar with an opportunity to submit comments and questions. The Auburn University-hosted event will focus on state-specific solutions for Alabama and is co-sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities and the Auburn University Office of Sustainability.

The panelists include Daniel Tait, Energy Alabama; the Rev. Michael Malcom, Alabama Interfaith Power and Light; and Karen McNeal, Auburn University climate science educator. The webinar will be moderated by Mike Kensler, director of the Auburn University Office of Sustainability.
