Have you wanted to learn more about climate change yourself, and how to help your clientele address the impacts it can cause? Since we first came together, members of the National Extension Climate Initiative have seen the need for climate training across the Cooperative Extension system. Our formal NECI objective is to:
Promote climate education and research throughout the extension system.
We have selected the EcoActUs www.EcoActUs.org certificate curriculum for beta testing among Extension educators. If you (and/or colleagues) are interested in climate training you can put to immediate use in your organization, please take part on one of both of the opportunities below. EcoActUs is a new 15-25hr self-directed, free curriculum you can study on your own time, designed to bring you up to speed (train the trainer format) providing resources you can incorporate (or not!) into your Extension programming. We have a unique oppportunity to work directly with the tean who developed EcoActUs to tailor the curriculum for Extension internal training!
1st Opportunity: please reply to Rick email@example.com or respond to this survey no later than Oct. 20th if you would like to help us evaluate whether to adopt this curriculum. We will ask you to complete some surveys to assess the applicability of the curriculum for broader Extension use.
2nd Opportunity: If you have expertise in Regenerative Agriculture or Oceans and Water Systems, the EcoActUs curriculum team needs your expertise to develop out two additional units. Expand your resume/career portfolio by contributing/networking with a global community of climate educators. If interested in helping to author these sections, reply to Rick firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Oct. 20th.
