Text below from OECE.

Are you interested in supporting the role of climate education in your schools to inspire collective action for a thriving future for Oregon? Join us from 1-4 pm Tuesday, August 20th in an online event.

Hear from students, educators and community partners across the state, through conversations and solutions that bring a local focus, addressing issues and impacts in Oregon, with implementation and action in our state.

Take home free resources and tools to integrate climate change standards, themes and knowledge into your lessons and whole school system. By registering and participating in the summit you will be entered into a raffle for either a $25 Powell's Books gift card or a paper copy of Mark Windshitl's Teaching Climate Change, a fall OSTA Book Club book. 20 gifts total available and winners can choose their preferred item.

Questions? Reach out to breck.foster@subjecttoclimate.org or Sarah Ruggiero Kirby at oregoneducatorsforclimateed@gmail.com

To learn more, you can explore these credible professional development resources developed by SubjectToClimate and our partners: Climate Change Explained; Climate Change Teaching Tips; and Developing Climate Change Lessons. These free resources are always available to help you teach about climate change, provide PD hours, and an NEA micro-credential. We invite you to view the first course before the session to provide all participants with the same context about climate change in order to dive in together around how it is impacting Oregon. The other 2 courses can be viewed independently after the workshop, as a means to learn more about how to teach CC and the development of lesson plans. 

Thank you for support from the Healy Foundation and input from the Oregon Climate Education Thought Leaders Committee.
