Conference Wrap Up
Coming Soon: Speakers and More Details on Session Styles
Strand 1: Environmental Justice & Climate Change
Climate change will not impact everyone equally. These sessions will include research, learning activities, resources, and conversations that will help participants delve deeper into environmental justice and learn about some approaches educators and community members are taking to raise awareness and address the unequal impacts of climate change.
Strand 2: Climate Change in the Classroom
What does climate change education programming look like both inside and outside the classroom. The sessions in this strand will demonstrate lesson plans and resources that put climate change in the forefront of students’ minds.
Strand 3: Climate Science
Climate science is at the nexus of many disciplines and systems. This strand will demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of the field and will explore connections between coastal ecosystems, agriculture, human health, social science and the ways in which this science supports decision making.
Strand 4: Individual & Community Level Solutions 
“What’s my place in slowing global climate change?” In terms of action, students are clamoring to help and oftentimes leading the charge. This strand will explore solutions-oriented frameworks and will provide a sampling of opportunities to engage students with individual and community level climate change solutions.
