Climate Teach-In

March 22, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Teach-ins are meant to inform, engage, and inspire action on important issues.  No issue today is more important to our world than climate change, which impacts everything we care about.

Join us to engage with experts on the topics of public health, environmental justice, solar energy in Alabama, and movement building. The speaker and outcomes for participants are outlined below. 

  • Climate and Public Health speaker Kelly Strickland: Understand the connection between the climate crisis and public health and wellness and learn how moving towards sustainable practices can positively impact public health and increase health equity for all! 
  • Environmental Justice speaker Ryan Thomson: Learn how the effects of climate change do not hit all Alabama’s communities equally. Issues of climate justice reveal stark differences in local impacts and the importance for a collective response that recognizes the needs of all Alabamians. 
  • Solar in Alabama speaker Daniel Tait: Discover how Alabama compares to its neighbors, both regionally and nationally, on clean energy, and gain an understanding of the utility and regulatory framework in Alabama to provide a foundation for taking action on clean energy in your community and across the state. 
  • Movement Building speaker Mark Wilson: Move from concern to action with stories and lessons from the American civil rights movement that remain applicable today. 

The Climate Teach-In is open to everyone and registration is requested, but not required.
