ICEC Winter Workshop 2022
February 12, 2022 ~ Baker Teacher Leader Center, University of Iowa
The climate crisis is leading to dramatic changes across Iowa’s landscape as our natural and human communities face unprecedented extremes in weather, from continual flooding to derechos, to extreme heat and lasting droughts. Environmental educators of all kinds need the skills and knowledge that will help them not only navigate the contentious environment surrounding climate change, but also foster meaningful behavior changes to benefit the collective work against climate change.
