Teaching Climate Change Across the Disciplines 

At the 2015 Climate Summit in Paris, then President Barack Obama called Climate Change the "one issue that will define the contours of the century more dramatically than any other”. Despite attempts to debunk global warming as a “hoax,” there is an overwhelming consensus among scientists that the earth is warming, that human activity is a major contributor, and that—without immediate and drastic measures—the consequences will be severe. Education is crucial, but how to teach Climate Change, both within one’s own field and across disciplines? What should a modern “Climate Change Curriculum” look like? 

Environmental Educator Stephen Siperstein, editor of Teaching Climate Change in the Humanities, will give the key address.

Panelists include: Professors Beth Notar (Anthropology) and Amber Pitt (Environmental Science). ​
