Climate change is a global reality that is affecting communities across the world, whether they are experiencing drought or floods, hurricanes or fires. However, the universal realities of climate change have disproportionate consequences for certain communities, particularly those who are already marginalized and disadvantaged. This interdisciplinary program examines climate change as it intersects with issues of social justice, activism, and the history of conservationism and environmentalism in the United States and internationally. The workshop introduces approaches for teaching for climate justice in a way that brings social studies into conversation with science and empowers students to make informed decisions as changemakers.
