We kick-off our 11th season with Climate Stories NC— a selection of new short films about ordinary North Carolinians—farmers, hunters, beekeepers, fishermen and others whose lives and livelihoods have been affected by climate change. The project, run by the Institute for the Environment at UNC, document real people talking about real problems.  A post-screening discussion will be led by David Salvesen, Director, Sustainable Triangle Field Site and research associate, UNC Institute for the Environment.

As the longest running program of its kind in the region, the UNCG Sustainability Film & Discussion Series continues to lend voice to environmental, sustainability, and climate issues affecting our community and the world. Join us each month for a new documentary film and discussion. Free. 

Support for the UNCG Sustainability Film & Discussion Series comes from Deep Roots Market, Fund4Democratic Communities, NC WARN, Sierra Club NC Chapter, Tate Street Coffee, UNCG Green Fund, UNCG Office of Sustainability, University Libraries, and Zaytoon Catering.
