Keynotes and Discussions (Days 1-2)

Educators Summit (Day 3)

May, 2014

Local communities are not prepared to meet the challenges of the recent and projected onslaught of climate impacts into their daily operations. The Educators Summit addressed this problem by helping middle and high school teachers and students design Common Core, STEM, & Next Generation Science curriculum to engage students as citizen scientists working in collaboration with community planners and leaders.

The Educators Summit helped middle and high school teachers and community leaders engage with students as citizen scientists working to better prepare their natural and human-built communities for the impacts of climate change.

Climate Impacts: Vulnerability and Adaptation Planning

Local and regional governments are leaders in climate change due to their unique position to make a wide range of decisions that can mitigate and adapt to our changing climate. Because they are on the frontline, many communities have conducted vulnerability assessments and engaged in adaptation planning. This module will enable participants to assess impacts to a business, community, or sector based on specific climate projections for a specific locale.

Climate Impacts: Communication, Facilitation, and Stakeholder Capacity Building

Collective actions at the societal level (civic or political action behaviors) include involvement and support of policies, plans, and funding for implementation of municipal projects that could increase local climate resilience. Community engagement with the issue of climate change typically is lacking at the local level. How individuals feel about climate change, how much they know about the issue, and how they act are all types of engagement that are needed for societal change.
