Webinar for Educators: Exploring Climate Migration in the Classroom
Educators are invited to join Pulitzer Center education staff and journalist-grantees for a professional development webinar on migration and its relationship to climate change. By engaging with a pathbreaking new reporting project in The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica, participants will be able to...

• explore new models for understanding how migration will change as the world warms,
• hear the stories of today's climate refugees from Central America,
• evaluate action steps to keep the planet habitable for human life,
• and identify interactive methods for sharing under-reported stories on migration with students.

Webinar attendees will receive a 1-hour certificate of attendance upon completion of a short survey.
