Supporting Women in Geography (SWIG) is sponsoriong a free, three-part Climate Change workshop including lunch. Everyone is invited no matter your discipline, knowledge level, or university affiliation (e.g. students, faculty, staff).
YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP.
We are capping attendance at 35 people in keeping with the interactive, hands-on nature of the event. Please register here.
The goal of the workshop is to give attendees a crash course on the science of climate change and how humans are influencing this natural variability. This will be followed by an informal Q&A catered lunch with a panel of guest speakers, including distinguished faculty members Dr. Michael Mann and Dr. Richard Alley. For the third and final part of the workshop, we will practice talking to a climate change denier (or just someone interested in bettering their understanding of climate change). This will be set-up as a "speed dating"/"role-play" situation so we can all practice communicating the science and get comfortable doing so.
A variety of prizes will be given out at the end of the event, including books and gift items! A comprehensive resource list of books, journals, news sources, organizations, data sources, documentaries, etc. will also be distributed.
If you're interested in co-sponsoring or helping out in any way, please let us know!
