ED32A:
Climate Literacy: Scaling Impacts of Climate Literacy Efforts through Effective Partnerships and Networks I


Session ID#: 8241

Session Description:
Climate change is impacting and will continue to impact many aspects of society. In order to address these impacts, coordinated large-scale efforts and effective partnerships are needed to equip citizens, professionals, and other decision-makers with the scientific underpinning necessary to make informed decisions for society. We invite presentations related to the development and implementation of partnerships and/or networks, or the bringing to scale of programs that address climate change education, communication, adaptation, or mitigation strategies. Of particular interest are efforts that bridge audiences, topics, or regions not traditionally connected. However, contributions for all effective partnerships, networks, and efforts related to enhancing climate literacy are welcome.
