Going for Green: Through the Green Glass


Through the Green Glass: Climate Change Tools for Education Leaders is the third volume in the Columbia Institut’es Going for Green series, where elected officials and climate experts share stories about leadership in sustainability, biodiversity, alongside legislative tools and promising practices for creating a legacy of biodiversity for your community. This collection of presentations is based on a conference that was held in January 2008 that brought together over 20 experts to speak on a variety of education-related sustainability issues. It includes a climate change primer – the dominant changes in the climate system, including the atmosphere, ocean, snow and ice; compelling arguments for action, and real models for change.
