Teaching Climate Change in the Classroom and in Your Community
Date and Time: Wednesday, February 28, 2024 at 12 PM CT / 1 PM ET
In order to address climate change and associated social issues, communities need to be able to make informed decisions. Building climate literate communities presents a huge teaching opportunity involving local schools, universities, workforce development organizations, media, and decisionmakers. This session will introduce both a framework for teaching climate change that fosters productive, solutions-oriented conversation and a toolkit for building a climate teaching network in your community.
