Everyone Can Teach Climate

Everyone Can Teach Climate

Open to:
Alumni, Current Students, Faculty & Staff, General Public, TC Community

On April 3rd, 2024 Barnard College and the Columbia Climate School will participate in the Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week.

The aim is to engage in an inclusive conversation on our campus around scaling up and improving teaching climate and justice. Our theme is “Everyone Can Teach Climate” to emphasize that teaching about climate and our planetary future touches every aspect of society and hence engages all disciplines, schools and operations. This community gathering will encourage all of us, whether a climate expert or just climate curious, to think about how to teach about it. Come learn how to “Make Climate A Class”, integrate climate into an existing course, use campus as a learning space, improve operations, create new course ideas and more. 

High Level Agenda:


Opening Remarks (Jeffrey Shaman: Intern Dean, Columbia Climate School; Sandra Goldmark: Director of Campus Sustainability and Climate Action, Barnard)


Panel 1: Innovations and Tips for Teaching (multiple faculty)


Panel 2: Student Voices (multiple students)


Campus as a Living Lab: Connecting to Campus Sustainability (Sustainable Columbia; Barnard Campus Sustainability and Climate Action)


Lunch + Workshopping - Tips & Tricks for the Climate Curious


Resources and Co-designing of Classes (Center for Engaged Pedagogy; Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning)
