The Language of Climate Change
March 9, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
College of the Holy Cross, Worcester
Early Bird Discount Ends Today!
Environmental educators wear two hats (at least). There is the scientist hat, well
fitted with content and process. Then there is the educator hat - perfect for
and presenting complex content to a wide audience. As climate change becomes the
environmental benchmark for this generation environmental educators need to hone
their skills in both arenas of science and communication.
Responding to that need, the Massachusetts Environmental Education Society will
convene a "Language of Climate Change" summit in March 2016, dedicated to widely
exploring avenues of climate change communication. The "Language of Climate Change"
will feature researchers, influential leaders, program models, and active voices
from within and outside of the environmental education field. Participants will
tackle the question: how do we bring about a behavioral shift when teaching, talking
or communicating climate change science? We will focus specifically on communicating
to a K-12 and college audience, and with over 200 formal and informal educators
expected, this is an opportunity to gather a wellspring of energy in the state to
address this topic.
Grant funding for this initiative has allowed us to bring in a nationally recognized
speaker, David T. Sobel of Antioch University New England, as well as a workshop
series by the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI).
