Educator Community of Practice
Education As Part of A Midwest Research And Solutions Agenda
March 14, 2023
2 – 3:30 pm CT / virtual / free / open to all
In this community meeting, we share a summary of the research themes that have emerged from a literature review of Midwest specific climate change research as well as the results of a survey on Midwest specific research interests and needs to the Midwest Climate Collaborative community and friends. Both the review and the needs survey suggest the importance of co-creating research and education together to join the discovery of challenges with active work for solutions. Themes include: nature-based solutions, supporting decarbonization, transportation solutions, and integrating climate and equity action into organizational culture. Participants in this meeting will look for areas of greatest traction and potential within their education work. We invite educators from academic, K-12, informal, and agency settings to share ideas for making connections. This session will be led by Abigail Aderonmu-Omunu a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the International Center for Energy, Environment and Sustainability (InCEES) at Washington University in St Louis who leads the Midwest Climate Research Agenda initiative for the Midwest Climate Collaborative.
