We have an outreach opportunity for a PCC grad student or postdoc. A teacher in the Highline School District is looking for a guest speaker for her class to talk about governmental, societal, and/or economic impacts of climate change.
Please let us know if you are interested! This is a great chance to talk to a group of high school students.

I am a high school history and English teacher requesting a guest speaker to come talk with my class of 12. My students recently chose that they want to focus on climate change as a contemporary issue/injustice that they want to research. One of my colleagues had one of your speakers come by today and talk with her class, which is heavily science focused. In fact, she’s speaking with them right now! For my class, we are not looking at the science as much as we are looking at the governmental, societal, and economic sides of climate change, as well as the idea of the disproportionate impact of climate change on various communities. Do you have any speakers who take that more humanities approach?
Our school is a small, alternative school in the Highline School District with students who are mostly self-identified as needing hands-on, experiential education models. Engaging with the community is one of the core focuses of the projects we choose. I’m looking forward to hearing back from you all and hope that you have a good connection in mind.
All the best,
Program on Climate Change at the University of Washington
