As a community that wants to make a difference in education, best learning outcomes for students, and the ways we can provide a safe and healthy future for them, as well as the planet and its inhabitants. Here is an opportunity to learn more about, discuss and help shape resources for students and educators in the ways we can teach, learn and combat climate change, together.
The Green Schools National Network is partnering with the global team of creators, including Seth Godin, behind The Carbon Almanac, and is hosting an interactive webinar and Q+A exploring two materials designed with educators and students in mind – an Educator’s Guide complete with activities and lesson plans and A Carbon Almanac for Kids tailored for primary grade learners. Your input will determine how these materials can best support classroom planning in the new school year.
Natural Pod’s CEO + Founder, and sustainability advocate, Bridgitte Alomes, will be contributing to the conversation in her role as President on the board of the Green Schools National Network.
The Carbon Almanac is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between hundreds of writers, researchers, thinkers, and illustrators that focuses on what we know, what has come before, and what might happen next. Drawing on over 1,000 data points, the book uses cartoons, quotes, illustrations, tables, histories, and articles to lay out carbon’s impact on our food system, ocean acidity, agriculture, energy, biodiversity, extreme weather events, the economy, human health, and best and worst-case scenarios. Visually engaging and built to share, The Carbon Almanac is the definitive source for facts and the basis for a global movement to fight climate change.
This is important work, so please join the discussion on August 11th at 3pm ET | 2pm CT | 1pm MT | 12noon PT
