My friend Dayna Regerro has been working hard all summer on something called the Western North Carolina Climate Listening Project. It is a collaborative storytelling effort to collect and share stories about how climate change is impacting lives in the mountains and how people are working for solutions.
Reggero reached out to farmers, restaurant owners, climate scientists, faith leaders and others. She listened to more than 50 stories of mountain residents. I was happy to lend my voice, as well.
“These are stories of people being resilient,” Reggero said in a written release. “I hope it inspires more solutions, and more ways anyone can connect to join the conversation.”
Today, I’m helping Regerro spread the word by debuting the WNC Climate Listening Project video she and her team have worked hard to produce. I hope you’ll give it a look. I’m excited about the passion and work people are putting into this critical issue; happy to be part of the conversation.
