How do we talk to our children about climate change? How do we incorporate climate activism into the busy routine of parenting? How can we process our emotions in order to effectively respond to this threat? This event will bring together leaders in the climate movement who are tackling these sorts of questions for an important and engaging discussion. They will also provide concrete ideas and resources that parents can use to help build a greener future.
