    For the foreseeable future, the topic of climate change will overshadow all that we do in environmental education. Yet educating young people about climate change is challenging. The science is complex and the solutions are not simple. In this interactive webinar, we will discuss the latest science, the numerous challenges faced by educators inside and outside of schools, and then introduce simple science experiments and practical approaches to teaching about climate change. We’ll learn to use K–12 activities developed by educators across North America that explore the greenhouse effect, the importance of a stable climate, clean air, the real cost of cars, and car-trip reduction programs for high schools.
