About the Event
We will analyze the work of Front and Centered, Got Green, Puget Sound Sage, King County, City of Seattle, Climate Solutions, and Project Drawdown. Teachers will practice developing impact projects that meet standards in context of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving equitable, local resiliency. How do we lead with equity on climate solutions? Who’s at the table? What constitutes a just transition to clean energy? What are the intersectional elements of racial justice and a sustainable future?
Our exploration includes interaction with local experts and advocates, a review of sample student work, Green Jobs Youth Pathways, and a team of Equity Interns from the Sustainability Ambassadors Youth Leadership Program.
Teacher Learning Goals
- Demonstrate an understanding of the intersectional issues and opportunities related to addressing climate change in our region.
- Design, adopt or refine one or more lesson ideas related to climate science, climate justice, or climate solutions.
