Live stream: Colorado’s efforts to educate a climate-literate workforce

One of the upcoming challenges for the future workforce will lie in sectors addressing the repercussions of climate change. This focal point is firmly on the agenda of decision-makers and educators in Colorado, who are advocating for state measures that bolster youth job training in environmentally friendly fields. The upcoming session of the “Future of High Schools” webinar series, presented by The 74 and The Progressive Policy Institute, will delve into this subject.

Don’t miss out on the discussion at 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday, where you’ll learn about Lyra’s Climatarium initiative, a non-profit effort that collaborates with educational institutions, businesses, and policymakers to establish pathways for Colorado students interested in climate-related careers. The panel will feature insights from respected figures like Mary Seawell, the CEO and Founder of Lyra, Colorado State Senator Chris Hansen, and Dr. Karen Cheser, Superintendent of Durango School District.
