Energize your programs with the latest updates on climate change science and strategies for climate education and outreach. Hear what’s new in the IPCC’s fifth climate assessment report, with a focus on Illinois. Explore strategies for reaching different audiences and practice hands-on activities for understanding climate change. In this climate clinic for educators, experts in climate change and education will share research, information and tools that will help you incorporate knowledge and activities into your teaching—whether you teach in the classroom, in the field or in the community.
This program is part of an ongoing series of workshops offered through Chicago Wilderness. Researchers and practitioners are rapidly learning more and developing new tools in climate science, communication and response. This workshop will help educators keep up with the latest developments by providing updated analysis of local impacts and new resources for educators. Presented in partnership with The Morton Arboretum, Animalia Project, and Chicago Wilderness.
