On Friday, March 28, the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism will be hosting its second “Climate Palooza.” The goal is to create a space for the public, activists and scientists to engage in discussion regarding climate change.

The event will give a festive twist to an otherwise academic event, complete with music, drama and even some comedy. While climate scientists share their knowledge with scientific presentations throughout the evening, there will also be “angry” haikus, a puppet show and even an improv group. 

Those co-curating for the event will be the USC Annenberg Earth Sciences Communication Initiative (ESCI) with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

Though last year marked the first ever Climate Palooza, this year’s event promises to be even more extravagant than the last. Climate Palooza hopes to draw an even larger crowd with these new climate-themed activities and entertainment. Food and drink will also be included. 

The event will be taking place from 4:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

If you are interested in engaging others in informative and entertaining discussions of climate control, RSVP here.
