Focus Your Campus on Ambitious Climate Solutions

Opportunity


On the night of Tuesday April 7, the Center for Environmental Policy at Bard College is coordinating a series of 52, university-hosted webinars, one in every state of the country, focused on ambitious but feasible state and local solutions to help solve climate by 2030. Help us engage 300,000 students across the country in this conversation on April 7. 


You don't have to be an environmental studies teacher for your classes to participate. The challenges posed by solving climate change necessarily range across history, science, business, culture, economics, psychology, religion, government, media, journalism and the arts. We will offer disciplinary entry points for follow-up discussion to the state-level, solutions-focused webinars, regardless of the class you are teaching.
What can you do? (1) Organize a live screening with your class of your state Power Dialog, or (2) Assign the live or recorded versions of the state Power Dialog as homework, and discuss them in your course.  The week of April 7, please use the opportunity provided by the state webinars to Make Climate a Class.

The world's top climate scientists have told us that the time to act is short. We must help our students understand just how extraordinary is the moment in which we are living. Action taken, or not taken, in the next few years will have impacts for thousands of generations into our human future, and now, this spring-- not next year-- is the time to focus our students on feasible, ambitious, local solutions. Thank you for joining this critical dialog.
