Tuesday, October 26th | 7:00pm-8:30pm | Understanding Climate Science and Change

It’s hard to avoid mention of climate change in the news these days - but how, exactly, can it be appearing in everything from drought to flooding and heat waves to polar vortices? After this class, held on the eve of the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, students will understand these seeming paradoxes rather as consequences of the intricacies of our interconnected planetary system, and will better appreciate the collective action necessary to mitigate the threat to our unique, delicate web of existence.

This class is appropriate for ages 14+.

This class will take place online through Zoom. Links to Zoom classes are sent out 1 hour before the start of class. If you do not receive your link, please check your spam or submit an email through our contact page.
