Local Solutions: Northeast Climate Change Preparedness Conference

See on Scoop.itRhode Island Geography Education Alliance

On May 21st in Manchester, NH there is going to be an educators summit around preparing for climate change in the Northeast. The stated goal is to: “help middle and high school teachers and community leaders engage students as citizen scientists working to better prepare their natural and human-built communities for the impacts of climate change”. This not only sounds like it might be interesting to RIGEA members in general, but it also sounds A LOT like one of the ideas that came out of one of our strategic planning charrettes.  We will have RIGEA representation at the meeting and hope you’ll consider attending.  This Friday is the last day to register online (but you can register at the the event as well). There appear to be some scholarships for minority and female middle school and high school students still available as well as travel grants.
