On June 16, 2016, a collaboration of entities hosted a community townhall on climate change in Charleston. One of the features of the event was the showing of the video below and a panel discussion. It was an inspiring event to say the least.
LEARN is committed to serving as an ongoing hub for collaborative environmental education and activism in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to check out the discussion below and join us in our efforts!
