TERC at AGU

Ken Mayer for TERCtalks

The American Geophysical Union is meeting this week in San Francisco (December 9-13) and climate change is one of the major topics of conversation. TERC had a critical role in organizing the climate literacy and education sessions occurring this week, and for the first time ever there will be Union Session (a particular kind of session at the annual meeting) focused on climate literacy education and engagement. If you are not at the conference, there are virtual options available.

I should also mention that TERC’s own Tamara Ledley will be honored at the meeting with an AGU Excellence in Education Award.
