Leaders from the New Jersey School Boards Association, Sustainable Jersey and other organizations will answer questions about a just-published comprehensive report with dozens of recommendations on how New Jersey schools can incorporate K-12 climate change education throughout their curriculum during a Facebook Live event at 2 p.m., Feb. 28.

You can attend by visiting NJSBA’s Facebook page.

Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, executive director of the NJSBA; Randall Solomon, executive director of Sustainable Jersey; John Henry, senior manager, STEAM and sustainable schools at the NJSBA; Dr. Lauren Madden, a professor at The College of New Jersey; and other thought leaders will highlight the value of “Report on K-12 Climate Change Education Needs in New Jersey.”

The comprehensive report will serve as a key resource for the school community to successfully navigate new learning standards adopted in June 2020 that made New Jersey the first state to incorporate K-12 climate change education across content areas.

“NJSBA is aware that school districts throughout the state are eager to receive information and resources on climate change education, so educators have the tools they need to meet the state’s updated New Jersey Student Learning Standards,” Feinsod said. “The recommendations in this report will go a long way to helping schools accomplish that goal and is one more example of how NJSBA serves the school community.”

During the Facebook Live session, which will be moderated by Michael Kvidahl, manager of digital communications and marketing at NJSBA, attendees – including members of the press – will have the opportunity to ask questions about the report and climate change education.
