Film-Inspired Students Catalyze Climate Action
Participants will form groups and compare curiosities about our unstable relationship with the environment. We'll speed through a micro version of the Unstoppable Schools Project: Research! Action! Exhibition! We will discuss the potential for climate action in our own school communities. Can we increase engagement, autonomy and awareness in our students by asking them to tackle this huge, real-world problem? Leave with free access to the curriculum and the film that inspired it: Chasing Coral.

- Engage your own curiosity to engage your students' curiosity
- Recognize ways to turn research into action by building tools to help students evaluate research questions and design actions for maximum impact
- Use documentary film to inspire student engagement, and organize student efforts for public exhibition according to the precise needs of the community
