2:00–3:00 PM (Pacific)

​​Call for Presenters:

​​I am looking for an additional 19 environmental leaders willing to share one idea they've used to engage with the public at community events. Here is how this session will work:

  • ​​Each presenter will have 55 seconds to share their idea and to show what it looks like.

  • ​​Each presenter will provide one slide showing this activity. The slide can be a collage of images like the one used in this announcement (you can find the template on Canva). Presenters will submit their slides the week before so that I can prepare the slideshow in advance.

  • ​​Each presenter will share a link (or links) in the chat so attendees can leave with resources for their teaching toolkits.

​​The remaining time will be an open Q&A so attendees can ask presenters questions about the ideas shared.

​​If you have an idea to share, please get in touch with me.

​​The Call for Presenters closes Friday, February 23, 2024.

​​Presenters must submit their single slide by Friday, March 1, 2024.

​​Other Information:

​​This live session will not be recorded.
