Scientists project that with every degree of temperature increase the Earth experiences, approximately one billion people will be displaced.
Educators are invited to join senior environmental reporter Abrahm Lustgarten and Pulitzer Center education staff for a professional development webinar on migration and its relationship to climate change. By engaging with "Refugees from the Earth," a pathbreaking new reporting project in The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica, in partnership with the Pulitzer Center, participants will be able to...
- explore new models for understanding how migration will change as the world warms,
- hear the stories of today's climate refugees from Central America,
- evaluate action steps to keep the planet habitable for human life,
- and identify interactive methods for sharing under-reported stories on migration with students.
Webinar attendees will receive a 1-hour certificate of attendance upon completion of a short survey. Click here to register!
