07apr7:00 pm8:00 pmVirtual Teach-in On Climate Solutions

Event Details


On Tuesday evening April 7, the Center for Environmental Policy at Bard College is coordinating 55 university-hosted webinars, one in almost every state and internationally, focused on ambitious but feasible state and local solutions to help solve climate by 2030. See which university is hosting your state webinar at: solveclimateby2030.org. At colleges, universities and high schools, teachers can #MakeClimateaClass (on-line) and help refocus the nation and the world on climate change.


From Nebraska to New Jersey, from Idaho to Alabama, and from Bangladesh to Brazil, find out what we can all do right at home to smooth the path for clean energy, and to bring energy justice to our communities. After watching your state webinar, have a virtual class discussion about what students and others can do to make these solutions real.

This opportunity is not just for environmental studies classes. The challenges posed by solving climate change necessarily range across history, science, business, culture, economics, psychology, religion, government, media, journalism and the arts. Solve Climate has teachers guides for all these subjects for a one-hour follow-up discussion to the state-level, solutions-focused webinars.

Covid-19 has shown how fragile our health and economic systems are to extreme events. Our scientists have also told us clearly that, unchecked, climate change will turn our lives into a series of unending extreme events: floods, droughts, rising seas, pests and disease, more extreme storms and hurricanes, leaving hundreds of millions of people homeless and on the move.

There is still time to change that future. And now, this spring– not next year– is the time to focus our students on feasible, ambitious, local climate solutions.  Thank you for joining this critical dialog, and sign up here to #MakeClimateaClass.
