HGSE Education Now | How We Talk About Climate Change with Kids

The results of a new survey from the Aspen Institute suggest that concerns for children could unify and inspire more Americans to confront the climate crisis. But for many parents and caregivers, talking about climate change with children — especially if they themselves are anxious about it — is a challenge. Join the Harvard Graduate School of Education on Wednesday, March 8 at 3pm ET to learn about strategies for how adults can be thinking and talking about climate. This webinar will also look at how children’s media landscape is reflecting climate issues and what we can learn from young people and their mobilization on this issue.
