What Do Public Art, Daycare, and Soul Food Have to Do with Climate Change?

Come learn about new multimedia resources that you can use to teach climate change and engage more people on your campus in climate action.

This interactive workshop will introduce climate change education and action materials from the Chicago Community Climate Action Toolkit, just released last May. It will be facilitated by applied anthropologists who were part of the team that created the Toolkit.

The Toolkit's place-based materials, all downloadable free of charge from the Toolkit website, include case studies of community-based climate action from diverse neighborhoods around Chicago as well as over 60 tools to help others engage their communities in climate change conversations and action. The tools present climate change as it relates to Chicago communities and other issues that people care about, like healthy food, youth development, and cultural heritage. Materials are available in English and Spanish.
