What is the role of the library in addressing climate change? This webinar seeks to help library leaders understand how their institutions can participate in the solutions for the most pressing crisis of our time. As institutions tasked with convening, informing and serving communities, libraries are a natural place to educate and discuss how climate change will affect us.
 
The Alliance for Climate Education and the Milwaukee Public Library are pioneering inventive and effective methods of climate education. ACE has changed the way young people engage with climate change and has been transformative in bringing climate education to informal learning institutions like museums and zoos. Milwaukee Public Library is literally building sustainability education into the fabric of the library, seamlessly combining operations and educational programming in order to complement one another.
 
Hear from these two leaders to learn how your library can take the next steps towards confidently and comfortably driving community education and response around the climate crisis.
