"Should Climate Change Change the Curriculum?" Mini-Lecture

1.5* Minute Climate Lecture Logo

Working with the College’s Council on Undergraduate Education (CUE), PPEH is organizing a year-long series of interactive webinars exploring ecoliteracy, climate change, and the liberal arts curriculum. Live on-line events range from a panel of presentations by leaders at peer institutions to interactive student-centered workshops promoting eco- and climate literacy. This mini-lecture, “Should Climate Change Change the Curriculum?” introduces the webinar series and is also offered as part of Penn's Climate Week.


From the Climate Week at Penn website:

The 1.5 Minute Climate Lectures will return on September 23rd as part of Climate Week at Penn. Professors and leaders from across the University will unite in a series of virtual lectures to sound the alarm about the climate emergency, to call for large-scale climate action, and to share a vision of constructive and comprehensive response.
