Throughout the last few months we have been busy planning for our Fifth Annual Institute for Climate Change Education on August 12 from 8:30-4:30(CST) at the University of Minnesota St. Paul Campus. Here are five reasons why we think you should join us, whether in person or virtually via webinar!
1. Our keynote speaker is Naomi Oreskes. She will be talking about the misinformation campaign that has persisted surrounding the issue of climate change. Her new book Merchants of Doubt, coauthored with Erik Conway, has been the subject of many articles, blog posts and conferences in the last few months. Here are a few examples: Climate Progress, Star Tribune, Time, yale360.
2. We will be unveiling our new project, Engaging Students in Environmental Conservation Through Adventure Learning, recently funded by Minnesota’s Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund.
3. We have participants from all over the state of Minnesota and the country flying in and participating via webinar that you will have the opportunity to network with!
4. We will be presenting a new funding opportunity for schools and youth available due to our new partnership with the British Council.
5. An excellent lunch will be included donated from local vendors!
