Climate Teach-In Challenge
This Earth Week we are asking all faculty to pledge to teach climate change in some way, big or small. We have a goal of reaching 500 sections and thousands of students during Earth Week; April 22nd to 26th. If you’re the first to convince your professor to take the pledge, you can earn a $5 café card – while supplies last! All you have to do is get you teacher to make the pledge here, and then email us by April 22nd at email@example.com with proof it was you who got your teacher to commit. Proof could be an email correspondence or a written note. We will review and confirm with pickup instructions by email. This is a great chance for you to engage with faculty to help create a conversation around climate change!
