and international educators to engage over 100,000 students in dialog about
ambitious action to stabilize the climate. It culminates on the evening of
April 7, 2021, with 100+ simultaneous, university-hosted webinars, one in
fifty countries worldwide, and every US state, and in DC and Puerto Rico.
These dialogs will reveal ambitious things that need doing in Ghana and

to stop climate change. Across the world, students can ask their teachers
to #makeclimateaclass,

their regional webinar as homework, and then using our course-specific
guides to talking about climate change in courses on art, biology,
philosophy, music, engineering or language and many other subjects.


Intern teams will design, deliver, and evaluate a social media campaign in
support of Solve Climate By 2030.  Guest speakers and discussion will focus
