2024 Global Climate Teach-in Events

Why a Climate Teach-In?

The World Wide Teach-In is an event focused on creating Climate and Justice dialogues at K-12 Schools, Colleges, Universities, and greater communities across the globe. A Teach-In model invites researchers, community leaders, students, and faith groups to speak for 5 minutes, and then participate in solutions-oriented discussions with attendees that will drive interdisciplinary perspectives and cultivate actionable solutions for your college and community.

How is it "Global?"

Through this effort, led by Bard College, more than 350 organizations across more than 50 countries will host Teach-In events on March 29.

Does it cost anything to attend?

The event is free and open to the public, but we ask that you register in advance. Attend in person or online. Food will be provided at Maceli's Banquet Hall.
