Climate Change Adaptations

This program encourages students to think about climate change adaptation and mitigation through a variety of activities. Students will develop a better understanding of the factors that contribute to climate change, and the effects of climate change on society, the economy, and the environment. They will also take on the role of exhibition designer; they will consider the choices involved in creating a museum exhibition related to climate change, and will be challenged to create content to inspire its audience and provoke thoughtful reflection.

This program is adapted from the Climate Change Adaptations lesson plans created by Let’s Talk Energy. There is an opportunity for a related group project that could be incorporated after the program.

Note: This program is virtual via Zoom, Google Meet, or the platform of your choice.
