Climate Literacy Collective Impact - Developing a Strategy

In recent years there have been a plethora of climate and energy literacy efforts, government funded and community based to enable individuals, professionals, organizations, and governments to make effective decisions within their realms of responsibility. Individually these efforts have limited reach, impact, and duration. We are seeking to enable broader reach, impact and sustainability through the development of effective Climate Literacy Collective Impact effort framed on the collective impact model described by Kania and Kramer (2011). In this Working Session we will build on input the Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) has received through ongoing discussions and surveys. This input suggests an effective strategy for a Climate Literacy Collective Impact effort is to enable a network of networks. The specific focus of the session will be to develop a template for a Climate Literacy Collective Impact Network at the regional/metropolitan scale and how it might fit into a coordinating overarching network that would coordinate and leverage the regional/metropolitan networks across the country.

Actions This will be a Working Session. There will be invited participants who will be addressing developing a template for building a regional/metropolitan area climate literacy collective impact effort. We need a full day of breakout sessions. I think they are 1.5 hours each and there are 4 in a day. The 4 can be broken over two days if the plenary sessions require that. While we will have invited participants attendees of the ESIP Federation meeting are welcome to participate in the discussions. Ledley needs to leave in the afternoon of Thursday July 21 to particpate in the Earth Educators Rendezvous in Wisconsin so these session must be complete by then.
