Thursday, April 25, 2013
7:30 – 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time (EDT)
Presenter: Kristen Iverson Poppleton
Place is an important tool when teaching climate change, and connecting the two makes the climate change immediately relevant and personal. Kristen will speak broadly on place-based education and climate change. She will provide specific examples of how the Will Steger Foundation connects Minnesota educators and their students with Minnesota as their place, makes them aware of how climate change is impacting them, and helps them develop ways they can implement solutions in their schools and communities.
