ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. - March 27, 2020 (Investorideas.com Newswire) On the evening of Tuesday, April 7, the Center for Environmental Policy at Bard College (Bard CEP) will lead a virtual teach-in on climate solutions and climate justice, focusing on ambitious but feasible state and local solutions to help solve climate change by 2030. The teach-in—part of Bard CEP's Solve Climate by 2030 (Solve Climate) project—features 50 university-led webinars in almost every U.S. state, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico, and at international sites in South America, Asia, and Europe through the Open Society University Network. "As learning and activism moves online, it is essential to continue teaching about this central global issue," says Bard CEP Director Eban Goodstein. "This April 7 teaching event is designed to engage secondary education, higher education, and local communities across the nation and around the world in a critical discussion about local climate solutions."
The state-level teach-ins are free and open to the public. For more information, including start times, and to register for your local teach-in, visit solveclimateby2030.org. Solve Climate By 2030 is made possible by support from Clif Bar & Company.
As university and high school teachers scramble to move classes online due to the new coronavirus pandemic, Goodstein says the April 7 event provides a ready-made lesson plan for college and high school classrooms. Solve Climate has teaching guides here for follow-up discussion, including entry points from every discipline: philosophy, political science, engineering, natural science, art, and economics. Community-level viewing events will be hosted at colleges and universities, high schools, community groups and faith organizations. International universities are welcome to participate. All of the webinars will all be recorded and will be available for future discussions.
Goodstein says solving the energy half of climate change by 2030 is looking more, not less, likely than it was four years ago. "The cost of solar, wind, batteries and electric vehicles have plummeted," says Goodstein. "In many cases, they are already less expensive then polluting fossil fuels—and getting cheaper every day. The important action on climate is now in cities, at local electric utilities, and with states. The challenge is bad local laws and regulations that are slowing the clean energy revolution."
The Bard Center for Environmental Policy (Bard CEP) offers M.S. programs in Sustainability that uniquely integrate an extended professional internship with a rigorous core curriculum, focused on developing leadership careers "changing the rules" in government, business and non-profits. We are living at an extraordinary moment in human history: CEP focuses on meeting the needs of soon-to-be ten billion people in a world in which we are already fighting over water, oil, topsoil, forests, fish and biodiversity, and which is getting hotter all the time. Our graduates are leading the work to rewire the world with clean energy, reimagine the global food system, redesign cities across the planet, regenerate forests, grasslands, lakes and oceans, reinvent transportation, and in doing all this, provide for human needs sustainably.
