Solve Climate By 2030 is mobilizing U.S. and international educators to engage over 100,000 students in dialog about ambitious action to stabilize the climate. It culminates on the evening of April 7, 2021, with 100+ simultaneous, university-hosted webinars, one in fifty countries worldwide, and every U.S. state, and in DC and Puerto Rico. These dialogs will reveal ambitious things that need doing in Ghana and Germany, Vietnam and Columbia, Kyrgyzstan and Australia, if we really aim to stop climate change. Across the world, students can ask their teachers to #makeclimateaclass, by assigning their regional webinar as homework, and then using our course-specific guides to talking about climate change in courses on art, biology, philosophy, music, engineering or language and many other subjects.
Intern teams will design, deliver, and evaluate a social media campaign in support of Solve Climate By 2030. Guest speakers and discussion will focus on the theory and practice of using social media to engage audiences in climate action. Interns who complete the program will receive a certificate, and can request letters of recommendation from Dr. Eban Goodstein, Director of the Bard Graduate Programs in Sustainability, which is the organization sponsoring the internship.
