Intergenerational Learning: How Children Are Changing Past Generations’ Environmental Perceptions

The 2020-2021 cohort of Global Change Fellows at the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center will present "Intergenerational Learning: How Children Are Changing Past Generations’ Environmental Perceptions." Recently, there has been a surge of research surrounding how children can teach their parents about a number of issues, including climate change. For this panel discussion, we have convened researchers who study the impact that children can have on their parents and the world around them. In this seminar, we will discuss the state of climate change education in our schools, what this means for intergenerational learning and future research. Further, we will discuss the influence intergenerational learning can have on communities and families. 

The panelists are:

  • K.C. Busch , assistant professor of STEM education in the Department of Education at NC State.
  • Norma Ortiz, an Indigenous grandmother, retired school counselor and educator from the community of Cidra, Puerto Rico.
  • Danielle Lawson, an assistant professor in the Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Management at Penn State University.
  • Kathryn Stevenson, an assistant professor in the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management at NC State.
