Dr. Libby McCann and Dr. Jean Kayira, both core faculty in the AUNE Department of Environmental Studies, teamed with students Andrew Graham, Jess Gerrior, and Cynthia Espinosa Merrero for two sessions. “Everyone Eats: Community Gardening as a Practice of Civic Ecology & Resilience,” offered tools, practices, and programming approaches to empower people, increase food security, mitigate climate change, and build community resilience through garden-based education. “Climate Justice and Environmental Education: An Open Space Dialogue” was a participatory session for educators to engage with each other around issues of equity and justice in the face of climate change impacts.

Dr. McCann paired with Dave Chase, affiliate faculty in the AUNE Department of Environmental Studies, for the workshop, “What’s Change Got to Do with It? Evaluation Strategies 101,” a hands-on, interactive session providing ideas and resources, as well as helpful evaluation terminology, logic models, data collection methods, and evaluation planning strategies.
