Peril and Promise: The Challenge of Climate Change

Since its inception in 2017, Peril and Promise: The Challenge of Climate Change has published 245 pieces of content for on-air broadcast and online consumption, including the five-part digital series Freedom to Breathe, which worked to understand how climate change intersects with the racial, social, and economic challenges that Americans face every day.

Climate change is inherent in all facets of life. Peril and Promise partnered with Nature on a social media campaign that delivers daily environmental awareness to combat climate change. If you take one small action each day – such as moderating your thermostat when you’re not home; recycling gift wrap – by the end of the year it will become #SecondNature. A partnership with ALL ARTS resulted in Climate Artists, an exploration of the environment and its complexities through an artist’s vision. And Peril and Promise traveled to America’s heartland with PBS NewsHour Weekend to examine how the changing climate is impacting states along the Mississippi River, from Minnesota all the way down to Louisiana.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Peril and Promise published two timely blogs. One points out the overlap between the communities vulnerable to COVID-19 and those that are most impacted by climate change. The other shares nature-based solutions to climate change.
