Living STEAM Laboratories: Mitigating/Adapting to Climate Change
2019 National Recreation and Parks Association Annual Conference / Baltimore, Maryland
The natural resources of parks and recreation are an invaluable defense to climate change. This conference session is an interactive discussion for park and recreation professionals, designed to jumpstart “Living Laboratory” programs within their agencies. These programs showcase the innovative ways parks and their partners can adapt to the world’s environmental issues and raise conservation awareness. With parks as the venue, educators can engage students using hands-on, experiential, research-based STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) curricula to foment a new wave of environmental leaders. The successful implementation of these programs will position parks as incubators for the environmental revolution needed to mitigate climate change.
