Speaking of Climate Change: Sharing Stories, Cultivating Resilience

Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Porter Byrum Welcome Center, Kulynych Auditorium 1834 Wake Forest Road Winston-Salem, NC 27106

sponsored by the School of Divinity's Food, Faith, and Religious Leadership Initiative and co-sponsored by the WFU Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability

Climate change is upon us and agriculture is inextricably involved. Fundamental to our identity as a species, crucial to the health and well-being of our communities, the way that we eat fuels the 21st century challenges that threaten our way of life. Sharing our hopes, our fears, and our own stories of adaptation sparks the social learning and innovation that cultivates community resilience.

Laura Lengnick, soil scientist, and Dayna Reggero, visual storyteller, gather stories from across America to explore the connections between climate change, food, faith, and community resilience. Weaving these stories with the latest climate science and resilience thinking, Laura and Dayna share a message of hope for these troubling times.

Dayna draws on more than 20 years of experience to teach about the power of story-telling through film, video, press, social media and community collaboration. Laura brings 30 years of experience as a sustainable agriculture researcher and college educator to her teaching about the ecology of food systems, climate change, sustainability and resilience.
