Community Conversation: Environmental Education, Water Literacy, and Climate Adaptation
THURSDAY, JUNE 24, 6 TO 7 P.M. || MOSQUITO CONTROL HEADQUARTERS AT 2100 LEON C. SIMON
Grab a spot on the grass and join us for a conversation on the connections between environmental research, community empowerment, and K-12 formal and informal education, co-hosted with Ripple Effect.
Since 2013, the environmental education nonprofit Ripple Effect has been exploring the concept of “water literacy” and the knowledge, skills, and ethical grounding critical to the well-being of individuals and communities in places like New Orleans. In 2020, Ripple Effect connected with over seventy teachers, scientists, practitioners, and community experts to develop a broad-based vision for water literacy and environmental education. Ripple Effect’s executive director Claire Anderson will share RE’s research findings, curriculum development, and teacher training. This will be followed by an open conversation facilitated by the Water Leaders Institute.
We welcome all perspectives and experiences as part of this conversation, and hope you will stay after for RISE at the Wildflower Meadow!
