If you've made it to this page, it's likely because you've been formally invited to the
Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Education Forum on August 15-17, 2022 at NorthBay Adventure Camp in Maryland. Throughout these artfully facilitated few days we will:
Convene and build a community of active climate education stakeholders
Learn and share about the state of education for climate action in the region
Create a strategic framework and map the strategies for advancing and funding climate action education
Identify catalysts and influencers essential for building capacity in education for climate action
Develop a set of key actions and identify teams willing to work on these actions
Help us keep the Forum safe - View our COVID Protocols.
Still have questions? Reach out to email@example.com.
There are a number of on-going national-level efforts that are informing the thinking behind this Forum. We're being intentional about integrating these important efforts that are already in progress.
To facilitate this, we're hoping that everyone can review the following documents, share what is resonating with you most in this Jamboard, AND share with us what other resources are guiding your own climate related work.
A New Green Learning Agenda - Christina Kwauk - Brookings Institution
Climate Empowerment Theory of Change - Neipold, Fraser, Crim and Field
K12 Climate Action Plan - K12 Climate Action
NOAA Community Resilience Education Theory of Change - NOAA Office of Education
