APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR THE 2019 CLIMATE STRONG! EDUCATOR INSTITUTE

 

Join a growing network of teachers and community educators who are engaging youth in climate leadership and community resiliency by attending the 2019 Climate Strong! Educator Institute, July 8-12 at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center in Ashland, WI and field locations within Lake Superior’s Chequamegon Bay region including the Bad River and Red Cliff tribal communities.

This professional development opportunity is designed to build climate teaching and leadership competencies in formal and informal educators, community leaders, and youth educators especially those serving tribal youth. The training integrates Oijbwe traditional ecological knowledge and leadership teachings, place-based investigations, and climate research.

Institute applications are now being accepted with enrollment limited to 30 participants. There is no cost to attend. Stipends and follow up support including mini-grants for youth-led community climate resiliency projects are available. Participants will receive multi-disciplinary teaching tools and resources that will build climate leadership confidence and capacity, both personally and in the youth they serve.

Climate Strong! is a partnership between the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, University of Wisconsin-Extension, Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, 1854 Treaty Authority, and the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve, with funding through a NOAA Climate Resiliency Grant.
