Earth Day Network's 2020 Teach-in Toolkit

Resource
Pro Pick!
Guidelines:
  • Emphasis on skills building
  • Action orientation
  • Usability

I love the newly added sections that cover how to host impactful digital teach-ins that will empower your audiences and communities to take on civic action and stewardship activities. I think this resource is a highly effective tool for bringing your community together and building capacity to make change. For those needing ideas for which topics to cover, the Topic Grab Bag section of the toolkit is a great place to find specific information on teach-ins for plastics pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, food sustainability, air and water quality, food waste and security, agriculture and deforestation, and flooding and drought. With suggestions on what speakers to invite and calls to action to end with, this toolkit is great for hosting in-person and virtual events!
