Climate Change and Higher Ed: Education Outcomes and Roles of Universities
Learn about recent findings on how rising temperatures affect education outcomes and hear how universities are taking action.
As temperatures rise, how is this affecting education outcomes? Learn about recent research from Steve Commings of the Luskin School of Public Affairs, University of California - Los Angeles, that summarizes the short- and medium-term effects of climate change on education outcomes.
What can universities do to address climate change in their own work? Hear about how universities are responding to climate issues in their work.
Relevant for staff and students of higher education institutions (HEIs) as well as researchers, policymakers, and those involved in programming, participants will deepen their understanding of the evidence linking climate change and education as well as some practical steps and lessons for how to address with HEIs.
Presented by USAID's YouthPower 2: Learning and Evaluation Activity, the Higher Education Engagement and Transformation Community of Practice (CoP) serves youth, practitioners in youth-serving organizations, policymakers, and staff and students of higher education institutions.
