The Educate2Act Conference is open to all undergraduates at Northern Arizona University. Join us as we engage in critical dialogue about current demands in public education and how future teachers can enact positive change.
This year’s theme is “Everyday is Earth Day: Youth Leadership and Climate Change on the Colorado PLateau”
The theme of the conference focuses broadly on the work of youth leaders like social justice warriors, March for Our Lives activists, Greta Thunberg, teenage climate activist, and Amariyanna “Mari” Copeny, aka Little Miss Flint, youth water activist.
How may we as educators support these emerging leaders, and what can we do in our classrooms, schools, and communities to aid student understanding of the effects of place-based education and climate change on where they live right now? Presentations on all topics are welcome, and connections to the “youth leadership” and “climate change” themes are highly encouraged.
Proposals are due on Friday, February 28th by 5 PM
Date: Wednesday, April 15, 2020
Time: 12:00pm – 5:00pm
Location: Eastburn Education (building #27); Program begins in Room 190
