Make Climate A Class
On Tuesday, April 7, 2020 and working with College and University partners across the US, the Bard Center for Environmental Policy is coordinating the convening of hundreds of conversations focused on the potential to solve the energy side of climate change by 2030. The event features 52 simultaneous, university hosted webinars, one in every state, and in DC and Puerto Rico. That evening, we will find out what are three, ambitious but feasible actions that need doing in Texas and Idaho, Missouri and New Jersey, Florida and Minnesota, if we really aim to solve climate change by 2030. The two-hour event will begin at 5 PM Local with the university-hosted, one-hour state-level webinars in each state, followed by 45 minutes of community dialogs.
Every College, University and High School faculty member who would like to engage students in discussion about climate change can require viewing of their state webinars-- either live or recorded- -as homework. Solve Climate will provide templates for follow-on discussion, including entry points from every discipline: philosophy, political science, engineering, natural science, art, and economics.
Community level viewing events will be hosted at colleges and universities, high schools, community groups and faith organizations. International universities are welcome to participate.
The links below to the state level Power Dialogs will go live the week of February 17. Please sign up here to stay informed.
