World leaders, scientists, climate activists and others are gathering in New York City for the United Nations Climate Action Summit taking place on Monday, September 23. The purpose of the summit is to showcase concrete plans of action to implement the Paris Agreement and to generate the political momentum needed to make the goals outlined in the agreement a reality.

While the challenge may be daunting, GPB and PBS offer a variety of streaming programs available to help viewers arm themselves with knowledge. Take a look below at a few programs aimed at explaining this complicated issue, examining the effects of climate change in Georgia and around the world, and  highlighting the work being done by governments and individuals to combat climate change.

In addition to following storm preparation and clean up efforts in the aftermath of recent hurricanes, host Sharon Collins speaks to Georgians directly impacted by climate change, those researching the issue and others working to address it.
