About the Event

Kick off the week with a documentary screening of Paris to Pittsburgh and a panel discussion about energy and climate change with local policy experts and leaders.

Registration is closed.


Paris to Pittsburgh  is an inspiring film that highlights Americans who are taking action on climate-related recovery and resiliency, with a focus on clean energy as a solution. Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), this National Geographic film captures what’s at stake for communities around the country and the inspiring ways Americans are responding. During the panel discussion, you’ll learn from local and state leaders about energy programs and policies that address climate change in North Carolina. They’ll address questions like these: How can businesses, states, and local officials progress a clean energy future? What are the unique challenges in North Carolina and the Southeast? What opportunities/careers are available for those interested in energy?


Appetizers will be served prior to the screening. Organized by the Nicholas School Energy Club as part of Energy Week at Duke.
