Upcoming Livestreams

November 11 at 9 AM ET – Communicating With Your Stakeholders About Climate Change

The ways in which we talk about climate change matter to our listeners, and climate action only happens when all citizens are invested in the decision-making process and connected to the issues. Implementation of the six elements of Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) (education, training, public awareness, public access to information, participation and international cooperation) is essential for tackling the complexities of climate change. This presentation will present best practices and examples of how to engage with our diverse audiences across the United States. Bringing together educators and researchers helps us better understand our audience’s diverse environmental perspectives to develop empathetic, locally-relevant, and action-oriented discussions on climate change in our own communities.

presenters:
Dr. Christina Kwauk – Brookings Institute
Kristen Poppleton – Climate Generation
Sarah States – Phipps Conservancy and Botanical Gardens
Dr. Danielle Eiseman – Cornell University
Jen Kretser – The Wild Center
