Educator Cafe: Climate Change and Extreme Weather

Is your community grappling with the impacts of more frequent extreme weather events? Do you want to find ways to engage your learners in this climate related topic? Please join us for an informal cafe style meeting about the impacts of climate change on extreme weather events. Dr. Andrew Pershing, Director of Climate Science at Climate Central, Inc., will kick off this interactive discussion.

This cafe is the first in what we hope will be a series of cafe offerings from Learning Ecosystems Northeast (LENE) sponsored by Gulf of Maine Research Institute. LENE is a network of regional learning ecosystems across Maine where formal and informal educators gather locally to collaborate to support youth in their region. We are working together to increase everyone’s comfort and confidence around climate change topics as well as the implementation of ideas that arise in our conversations.

All teachers, informal educators, and librarians are welcome to the science cafe and into any of the regional connected learning ecosystems (CLEs). If you want to learn more about the work and/or join a CLE, check out the Learning Ecosystem Northeast site ( or contact me at [email protected]
