Join WWNO and partners for a panel on the United Nations talks on climate change. COP 21: A Turning Point for Global Climate Change will be held on Friday, November 20 at 10 a.m.

The panel will discuss the importance of reaching a global climate agreement at the COP 21 conference in Paris, France, this December. Experts will discuss the potential impact on Louisiana and how the state fits into the global conversation on climate change.

Have a question about why your block floods? Or the state of our sewerage and water system? Regional plans for flood protection? What you can do to help make your neighborhood safer from flooding?

Join WWNO's Eve Troeh and experts for a community conversation this Saturday, November 7, at Sojourner Truth Community Center, 2200 Lafitte Ave. RSVP here and/or submit a question.

We'll hear from:

This is certainly a busy time of year for WWNO with the gubernatorial election, coastal developments, education news in full swing, and so many cultural events taking place in New Orleans. The award-winning WWNO News Department under the leadership of News Director Eve Troeh continues to grow and produce some great content for WWNO 89.9/KTLN 90.5, and online as well at WWNO.org.

The Tulane Environmental Studies Program joins with WWNO and the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic for the fourth event in its series on “The Katrina Disaster Now”: a conversation about rising seas, sinking land, climate change, Louisiana, justice, and community – featuring leaders from diverse communities across the Louisiana coast in an event moderated by NPR National Correspondent Debbie Elliott.

89.9 WWNO — New Orleans Public Radio is launching an experimental new community-embedded reporting series, focused on the Louisiana criminal justice system. The station was one of 15 organizations chosen from over 200 entrants in a nationwide competition to incubate storytelling experiments and expand public media to more Americans.

Labor Day has passed. And while it would be foolish to open your doors expecting any hint of autumn breeze, early September this year does bring a particularly needed respite.

We will not be hearing the K-word, and its accompanying R-word, several times each day. Local outlets did their heavy lifting, looking back and looking forward. The national camera crews have packed up and headed back. The hotels have emptied of the many visiting journalists, charity and nonprofit workers, experts and onlookers.
