Community Meeting 5

Beyond the Classroom: Engaging Learners in Climate Solutions

Dec 6, 2022, 10 am - 12 pm CT

This meeting featured non-traditional educators sharing strategies for place-based and interdisciplinary climate change curricula beyond the classroom. We heard from leaders with Climate Strong! and Sustain Dane about strategies that have worked for their organizations. Attendees will have time to develop and discuss strategies for applying these approaches to their own education efforts.

Climate Strong! is a partnership of university, tribal college, and tribal organizations that builds the capacity of teachers, informal educators, and youth to take action for building community climate resiliency within the Ojibwe Ceded Territory (Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan). Additional ideas will be shared by the University of Wisconsin- Division of Extension, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, 1854 Treaty Authority, and the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve. Attendees will have time to develop and discuss strategies for taking approaches into their education efforts.

Sustain Dane is an education non-profit in Dane County, Wisconsin with the mission to inspire, connect, and support people to accelerate equity and sustainable actions for community well-being. They offer a variety of education opportunities for businesses, organizations, and individuals who want to deepen learning about sustainability and strengthen their connection to the local sustainability movement.
