Join Principal Research Scientist in Education, Tina Grotzer Ed.D. '93 as she discusses climate change and its existential threat to life on Earth and how to use education as a tool to address it. The responsibility for creating atmospheric CO2 is not shared across the world’s populations or successive generations and yet it has wrought environmental injustices that impact the most vulnerable populations and create intractable challenges for young people and future generations. Educating during a changing climate raises significant challenges for educators and global citizens. How can educators help learners to understand the rare confluence of dynamic processes that lead to the habitability of our planet? How do we communicate with urgency that the habitability of our planet is in peril while protecting the mental health of young people? How do we help students learn to act as a global collective of earthlings on a small blue planet, to address the injustices of climate change, and to navigate the loss of the pact between generations? This session considers what is known about each of these challenges as well as research-based findings and learning activities related to addressing them.

This program is sponsored by the Harvard Alumni Association and the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability
