NHPR Earth Week Programming 2023
Climate change “super” solutions, like increasing solar and wind power, are well underway in New England. But in a region where residents see the effects of climate change year round, everyday solutions are also essential: like how we bury our dead or get the kids to school.
This year for Earth Week, NHPR and its partner stations in the New England News Collaborative are sharing stories about people in New England who are finding unexpected and creative ways to act on climate change.
National Earth Week Dates: April 17th through April 22nd
On NHPR, look for reporting on-air during Morning Edition and All Things Considered as well as on NHPR.org and the NHPR app, including news from NHPR's climate change reporter Mara Hoplamazian on the growing movement to incorporate Community Power in 14 New Hampshire towns.
Monday, April 17th: Give Back NH features Grassroots Fund in Newmarket, NH. This segment is scheduled to air during Morning Edition @ 6:45 & 8:45 AM.
Thursday, April 20th: Outside/In Presents: The Race to Net Zero @ 2PM. “The Race to Net Zero" is a special, one-hour broadcast from NHPR’s Outside/In.
