At an Academy, students learn about Climate Change from other students through engaging in a slide presentation and discussions, working on their ability to speak with knowledge and authority about Climate Change, and practicing sharing that presentation with other students and adults. We will be learning how to plant a tree, using a game to learn about Climate Justice, and brainstorming techniques to enable students to take action. The Academy experience centers on developing students' knowledge and ability to present this information to others—encouraging themselves and others to act on Climate Change.
If you would like to volunteer as an Adult or Ambassador, including if you are a parent of a student attending the Academy, please register at: http://bit.ly/CCR-Oct22-2017-Reg-Volunteers.
