Effectively Educating on Climate Change

Posted on January 12, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Today Clean Currents hosted its first webinar of 2011. Three wonderful guest speakers joined us to discuss the theme: “Effectively Educating on Climate Change”.

Lori Wark, founder and editor of the website www.adventures-in-climate-change.com, spoke about connecting individuals to the fun and interesting aspects of environmental science through internet technology.

Daisy Pistey-Lyhne, Senior Educator with Alliance for Climate Education, discussed how to engage young people in learning and doing something about climate change.

Linda Schuck is a Senior Advisor and Director of the Behavior, Energy and Climate Change Project at California Institute for Energy and the Environment (CIEE). Schuck explained that while we can never truly understand exactly how individuals are motivated to change his or her behavior, there is a great deal of research regarding the economics and social norms that influence people on a daily basis. Understanding these social phenomena can help us be more effective communicators about climate change and environmental issues in general.
