Solve Climate By 2030 is mobilizing US educators to engage over 100,000 students in dialog about ambitious action to stabilize the climate. It culminates on the evening of April 7, 2020, with 52 simultaneous, university-hosted webinars, one in every state, and DC and Puerto Rico. These dialogs will reveal three, ambitious things that need doing in Texas and Idaho, Missouri and New Jersey, Florida, and Minnesota if we aim to stop climate change. Across the country, every student in an environmental studies class, every AP environmental science class, every faith group, and civic organization can participate.
Intern teams will design, deliver, and evaluate a social media campaign in support of Solve Climate. Guest speakers and discussion will focus on the theory and practice of using social media to engage audiences in climate action.
