Online Climate Change Discussion
June 4 @ 4:00 pm
The Brooksville Free Public Library and Reversing Falls Sanctuary are co-sponsoring an online discussion titled “What Should We Teach the Young About Climate?” on Saturday, June 4, at 4 p.m.
Panelists will discuss the future of climate education.
The conversation will be moderated by Dennis Kiley, director of the Eco-
Psychology Institute in Bar Harbor.
Educators are on the front lines and able to instruct our youth about the climate
dangers relevant to their well-being. The significance of climate education is
emphasized by the recent passage of LD 1902, which seeks to promote the
teaching of climate studies through the allocation of $2 million dollars in
grants. The rationale for the bill draws heavily upon research conducted by
Penn State University involving 1,500 teachers in 50 states which found the
clear and urgent need to upgrade climate education in order for students to
achieve climate literacy.
