Climate Change Education Roundtable Upcoming Workshops

Workshop on Engaging Family Private Forest Owners on Issues Related to Climate Change
The NRC's Board on Science Education and Board on Environmental Change and Society are collaborating to host the fourth public workshop of the Climate Change Education Roundtable. Funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service and National Institute for Food and Agriculture, this 2-day workshop will discuss strategies that are rooted in behavioral, social and educational sciences for engaging private individual, family, and community forestland owners in conversations about climate. During the workshop presentations by forestry experts will seed audience discussions of:
  • Threats to forests posed by climate change and human actions,
  • Private forestland owners' (to include individual, family, and community forest owners) objectives, values, knowledge, and dispositions about forest management, climate change and related threats, and
  • Strategies for improving communication between forestland owners and service providers around forest management in the face of climate change.

 *Supported by funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service
