Ethics, Culture, & Education: A Powerful Response to Climate Change
What do Aldo Leopold, a Native American tribe and Wisconsin’s rural students have in common? For the inspiring answer, we invite you to join us for our 6th Annual Climate Change Forum on Saturday, May 18, 2019.
This year’s program, Ethics, Culture & Education: A Powerful Response to Climate Change, features presenters whose endeavors form critical threads in the ever-expanding fabric of response and adaptation to climate change.
Aldo Leopold’s seminal vision of an ethic based on “voluntary decency,” a cultural imperative to protect ancestral lands, and citizen scientists in the classrooms of rural Wisconsin are all powerful examples of climate action that is taking place throughout our state and beyond.
We live in a time when news stories about the environmental issues facing us seem unrelentingly dire. Climate change with all its accompanying challenges and disruptions can certainly over-whelm even the most hopeful among us. Yet history has taught us, time and time again, that it is a mistake to underestimate the strength and creativity of the human spirit. Today the challenge for all of us is to learn from, support and build upon the fine work that is already being done by our presenters and others.
We hope you’ll join us for this exciting, informative program. There is no question that together we can accelerate the pace of positive change.
