The third day of the Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Education Conference (MACCEC), Wednesday, June 30, will focus on Eclectic Climate Change Education.
Pulitzer Prize-nominated photographer Greg Kahn will open the day and share how photography can be used to teach about an issue. Khan’s work concentrates on issues that shape personal and cultural identity. Sea level rise, due to climate change, is highlighted in his 3 Millimeters project which captures the landscape and people on Maryland’s Eastern Shore as they adapt to the changes around them.
Following Greg, we will learn how educators from across the region have already incorporated unique methods for teaching about climate change. From cooking to Escape Rooms, and student-created online courses to art, incorporating non-science disciplines and connecting to your audience’s interests can help strengthen your climate change programming.
