The NOAA Environmental Science Training Center (ESTC) will be offering two virtual opportunities for educators this summer focused on climate change. With the Mid-Atlantic region already experiencing climate change impacts like rising temperatures and increased precipitation there is a growing demand for more education on climate change action.
The Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Education Convening (MACCEC) will happen on Tuesday, July 26, 2022. This 1-day virtual event builds off the work that occurred the past two summers at the Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Education Conferences. The convening will bring together a community of educators to learn from and share examples of education and outreach happening across our region focused on climate change action. Participants will also join in discussions on how to move our region forward on climate change action to inform future work for MACCEC. Register for the free event by visiting www.maccec.org/registration.
The second opportunity is the Summer Institute for Climate Change Education, hosted by Climate Generation in partnership with NOAA’s Climate Program. ESTC will be leading a cohort of Mid-Atlantic educators attending the virtual workshop on July 18-20, 2022. Participants will gain the skills, tools, and resources to teach climate change concepts and empower students in all subject areas, and receive on-going support throughout the year. This year’s theme, “Finding our Collective Strength,” centers the Institute on building the collective strength to inspire hope and action in our communities while connecting to an engaged and authentic network of educators from across North America. The Institute will be completely virtual, scholarships are available. Register by visiting go.climategen.org/summerinstitute.
