Members of the media are invited to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences’ Nature Research Center to participate in “E.O. Wilson’s Global Town Hall,” with world-renowned biologist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward Osborne Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus at Harvard. The virtual event happens on Thursday, December 13 at 1 p.m. inside the NRC’s Daily Planet Theater, where a select group of 150 middle and high school students from North Carolina are special guests. Wilson will field questions from audience members, as well as via Twitter at #EOWilson. Students and teachers can also submit questions in advance of the event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
General public who wish to see the Town Hall, can do so in one of two locations inside the Museum streaming the event—the Auditorium inside the Museum’s main building, or inside the Environmental Conference Center on the 4th floor of the NRC. It can also be accessed live and after the event at http://livestre.am/4jntq
Following Wilson’s presentation at 2:15 p.m., media and on-site visitors are invited to a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at the entrance to the NRC’s Citizen Science Center on the 1st floor, celebrating the opening of the first permanent museum exhibit highlighting E.O. Wilson’s Life on Earth, a digital biology textbook for high-school students being developed by the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation.
