In conversation with national and local leaders, we'll highlight an action-oriented agenda for the education sector with innovation and engagement as drivers for climate resilience and mitigation. We'll show how schools and communities are already making an impact in confronting climate change — altering our use of resources, creating exciting learning opportunities, and advancing equity in community approaches. We'll explore ways to accelerate progress, to spur collective effort, and to act with urgency. And we'll ask participants to share stories of where they are finding hope and momentum now.

Speakers include:

  • Michael Hester, Superintendent, Batesville School District, Arkansas; strategic planner for Arkansas' first school district solar initiative, the savings from which was used to increase teacher salaries
  • John King Jr., Chancellor, State University of New York, and former U.S. Secretary of Education
