Missouri Climate Dialogue: Green Recovery, Climate Solutions, and a Just Transition

April 7, 2021
5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Beginning April 6, across the world and in every US State, over 125 universities are hosting webinars on a Green Recovery, Climate Solutions, and a Just Transition. From Austria to Alabama, Kyrgyzstan to Kentucky, Colombia to Colorado, and Malaysia to Minnesota, we will hear from local climate experts about concrete steps that can really move the needle on climate change.

Join us as we discuss the next important steps for Missouri with the Honorable Congresswoman Cori Bush. Followed by a panel discussion with Ashlen Busick – Sr. Regional Rep., Socially Responsible Agriculture Project, Sal Martinez – Chief Executive Officer, Employment Connection, and Rachel K Owen, PhD – Executive Director, MOST Policy Initiative.

Join the #MakeClimateAClass Campaign:

Kick off Earth Month by assigning this webinar as Homework-– either live or recorded– and engage your students in this critical dialog.

Every discipline contributes to understanding climate solutions and climate justice: whether you teach ART, LITERATURE, HISTORY, MATH, SOCIOLOGY, BUSINESS. PHILOSOPHY, POLITICAL SCIENCE, MUSIC, BIOLOGY, DANCE etc…. You don’t have to be an expert on this topic, as you can access easy-to-use  teaching guides complementing the webinars provided by a global education project based at Bard College in New York. Scientists have told us we have ten years to act to hold global warming to the low end, and your students deserve a one-hour class with you to talk about climate solutions and climate justice—from your disciplinary perspective. 

We have ten years to solve climate—we can get a lot done in this decade. But only if we focus the world on climate solutions and a just transition. As an educator, please help your students learn how your area– PSYCHOLOGY, THEATER, ENGINEERING, PHYSICS, RELIGION, COMPUTER SCIENCE, CHEMISTRY, DANCE, LANGUAGE and more– is part of the solutions to this existential challenge to our future. Take the Pledge to stay informed and #MakeClimateAClass this semester.
