The job of educators is to prepare young people to thrive intellectually, financially, and emotionally in the future. Brookline teachers do an outstanding job of preparing students--but for a future that no longer exists. The future of climate change has arrived and we are living through an undeclared emergency. Should schools play a crucial role in addressing the climate crisis? Increasingly students, teachers and parents/caregivers demand "yes!"


Roger Grande, BHS Teacher, has spent the year working with educators, students, and parents/caregivers to make sustainability a core practice in Brookline schools. He'll speak to why schools must serve as a key institution in addressing climate change, and why they naturally fit in this role. Further, he'll present a blueprint for how Brookline Schools can move forward and adopt a sustainability mission. He is followed by a roundtable of administrators, teachers and a student who will discuss the obstacles and opportunities for our schools.
