Effective Practices for Climate Change Communication and Education

Join the Rhode Island Environmental Education Association (RIEEA) for its Annual Summit on February 8, at Rhode Island College. This year’s theme is Effective Practices for Climate Change Communication and Education, and the keynote speaker is Hannah Pickard, climate scientist and network manager at the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation. 

This year’s program is a unique opportunity to bring together engaged communities throughout the state and from across various sectors. Attendees will build networks, gather resources, share best practices and cultivate leadership skills for widespread environmental literacy adoption and implementation. Teachers, informal educators, farmers, health care providers, business owners, scientists and interested community members are invited to attend. 

There will be breakout sessions led by a variety of respected leaders in Rhode Island as well as updates on RIEEA’s work this year and future plans. Included in the modest registration fee is a 2020 RIEEA membership, an environmental education awards ceremony, raffle prizes, and a full, hot breakfast.

Cost: RIEEA Summit is $40/individual and $95/organization and includes annual membership to RIEEA. Scholarships available for K-12 educators. Location: 600 Mount Pleasant Ave., Providence. For more information, visit
