We heard from an inspiring panel of experts in education and conservation working to address climate change through the power of education as part of our 2017 virtual conference. Check out the recorded session and join in on the discussion on eePRO now!
Tuesday, October 17 through Thursday, October 19: Join us for virtual conference week at NAAEE. We’ll share a few highlights of what was planned for Puerto Rico through a series of webinars, live-streamed events, and conference session posts.
Guest blogger Erin Twamley kicks off back to school season with tips for helping middle and high school teachers integrate energy and climate change in the classroom using NAAEE and Kettering Foundation's Environmental Issues Forums (EIF).
Researchers at Duke's Nicholas School of the Environment are helping NAAEE compile and create research summaries and syntheses for an online database to be housed on eePRO, an exciting project conducted jointly with the Children and Nature Network with funding from the Pisces Foundation. We want to hear from you about what would be most useful to you!
"Visualizing Change” is a website [ http://vischange.org/ ] that provides a toolkit full of examples and dynamic visuals and builds on advances in cognitive and social science research, to enable informal educators to use visual narratives on climate change to more effectively reach diverse audiences.
Emerging research is demonstrating more and more the importance of hope in tackling long-term, large-scale issues like climate change. We have learned that feeling fearful and helpless does not effectively move us to action, and it is important that we approach climate change education from angles that motivate and empower rather than threaten and defeat. If you enjoyed Dr. Elin Kelsey's April webinar on "Wild Contagious Hope" in the environmental movement, check out this article in "The Conversation" that highlights another wonderful initiative to share environmental success stories called "Lost and Found Nature."
What a better way to celebrate Earth Day (and the amazing show of support around the globe for the role of science in our lives) than to sign up for the Earth Educators' Rendezvous in Albuquerque this summer.
With 27 workshops, 16 round table discussions, 2 plenaries, 2 poster sessions, one concluding town hall and more than 130 contributed presentations/teaching demonstrations, everyone who teaches about the Earth from across the sciences, social sciences, humanities and engineering will find ideas and activities of interest.
