Webinar Description

NAGT's Position Statement, "Teaching Climate Change" was adopted in 2009. While the basic ideas of that statement hold up well, it was overdue for an update. The Advocacy Committee has drafted both a new position statement on this particular issue, and crafted new processes for adopting position statements and keeping them current. This session will introduce the statement, seek feedback on it, discuss the utility of professional organizations' position statements, and both share and seek insights on improving the processes of developing, disseminating, and leveraging position statements for improving educational outcomes.

Webinar Goals

The purpose of this webinar is to:

  • Raise awareness of NAGT's position statements, especially the newly drafted statement, "Teaching Climate Change, Energy Use, and Land Use."
  • Gather feedback on the newly drafted statement and the processes for position statement development and use.
