Summer Institute for Climate Change Education

 

Join ACEE, Climate Generation, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for a three-day virtual conference on climate change education built by educators and climate change professionals from across North America! Gain the skills, tools, and resources to teach climate change in all subject areas.

On July 18 & 19, learn from presenters from all across North America. Two keynote speakers have been announced: Karin Kirk, geologist and freelance writer for Yale Climate Connections, and Cat Techtmann, Professor from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and one of the designers of the G-WOW place-based climate curriculum.

This year's institute will focus on the following themes:

  • Climate Observations and Data
  • Climate Change Communication
  • Equity and Justice
  • Power of Education
  • Overcoming Barriers to Teaching

On July 20, join the Alberta/Canada cohort (one of 14 regional cohorts - see map) as we debrief and reflect on our learnings within the Alberta and Canadian contexts and work collaboratively on unit plans customized to your teaching practice.

Testimonials from the 2021 Institute:

“It was amazing to be able to connect with educators all over North America. The Alberta/Canada cohort was a great way to focus on our community.” 

"The Summer Institute turned my teaching of climate on its head: I can now thoroughly embark on an authentic, localized exploration of solutions for our common future that empowers students and brings forth active and connected communities. How exciting!"
