From disappearing shorelines to extreme weather events, we are witnessing the effects of climate change in real-time. As we look to the future, NLM welcomes Julie Hancher, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Green Phillyas she leads a discussion with Roland Wall, Executive Director of the Patrick Center for Environmental Research at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, and Roger Turner, Curator of Instruments and Artifacts at the Science History Institute (SHI), about how we understand climate change and imagine a way forward. After the discussion, grab a drink and team-up for Solarpunk Futures, a collaborative board game designed by artist collaborative Solarpunk Surf Club. The future in your hands: what choices will you make? Stop by before the program begins for a brief behind-the-scenes tour of Playing Dirty, SHI’s latest outdoor exhibition that explores the intersections of environmentalism, education, and fun in 1970s board games.
