Date and Time:
Tuesday, September 15, 2020, 7:00pm
September 15, 2020, 7 PM ET - Free Webinar
The Ecological Threat Register (ETR), produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace, synthesizes and visualizes data on environmental indicators that can impact levels of violent conflict. The Register shows the challenges ecological threats and climate change pose to global development and peacefulness.
Hosted by NewGen Peacebuilders (NGP) and Footprint App, Inc. in honor of the International Day of Peace (September 21), this free webinar will present an "Environmental Science + peace" curriculum that aligns with Unit 5 (Land and Water Use) of the Advanced Placement Environmental Science (APES) course and features the Pillars of Peace framework and Ecological Threat Register (ETR) produced by the Institute for Economics & Peace. These curriculum materials are now going to be available for free to APES teachers across the US given the COVID-19 remote learning challenge.
