From disappearing shorelines to extreme weather events, we are witnessing the effects of climate change in real time.

As we look to the future, National Liberty Museum (NLM) welcomes Julie Hancher, cofounder and editor-in-chief of Green Philly, as 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. Panelists will explore 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 is in your hands: what choices will you make?

Stop by before the program begins for a brief behind-the-scenes tour of Playing Dirty, the Institute’s latest outdoor exhibition exploring the intersections of environmentalism, education, and fun in 1970s board games.

General admission tickets are $15 for adults ($25 with a drink voucher), and $10 for NLM members.
