Jen Kretser, Director of Climate Initiatives, The Wild Center, Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks
Climate change is impacting all of us and it is happening right here in New York State (NYS). Climate change is overwhelming and can feel pretty hopeless, but there are many ways we can work together to build hope and optimism for the future. This conversation will explore what climate impacts are happening here in NYS and the solutions that are available to address the climate crisis. With this climate solutions lens in mind, the speaker will share how education and engaging youth is essential to promote climate action and just transition to a more resilient future. Hear how youth are working across the state to advance climate change education and action. Build a new understanding of the role community partnerships, including the role of cultural institutions can play in supporting young people and engaging the public.
