On Tuesday, October 28th, please join Dana Haine and Sarah Yelton for an in depth and focused follow-up webinar to their extremely well received presentation in August. Both educators from the UNC Superfund Program Research Translation Core and the UNC Institute for the Environment will share strategies, tips and resources for developing timely and relevant lessons, including those that feature controversial or sensitive environmental issues, such as environmental justice. Participants will consider local environmental issues that can serve as the foundation for lessons designed to effectively engage others around a topic and promote environmental literacy.
