​Let's Talk Climate: Messages to Motivate Americans

This program qualifies for three hours of professional development credit.

EcoAmerica's president, Bob Perkowitz,  will present the keynote address at the 2018 Sustainability in the Curriculum Workshop for DCCCD faculty on Friday, April 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the LeCroy Center.

You'll discover how to connect with your students' values, identities, and priorities to capture their attention, inspire hope, and motivate action on climate solutions among “persuadable” Americans.

Designed to engage Americans across political and demographic groups on climate solutions, this research builds on ecoAmerica’s previous messaging research. It includes general messages that increase personal relevance and motivation, tips for application, and thematic language on faith, health, communities, higher education, and business.

After the keynote, there will be round table exercises so you can practice what you've just learned.

The final breakout session of the day will be a review of new and existing sustainability resources for faculty, staff and students.
