In conjunction with the first ever White House Arctic Science Ministerial meeting, we would like to invite you to spend an afternoon learning about hands-on activities and resources that leverage Arctic science as a vehicle for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education and citizen empowerment. During this special side event, attendees will have the chance to explore tools ranging from mobile apps to scenario explorations to card and board games that help formal and informal educators, school administrators, lifelong learners, and families bring the Arctic into their homes and classrooms. The event will feature activities and resources developed by the PoLAR Partnership, the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS), Arctic Portal, Arctic 21, the Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC), EDU-Arctic, the Consortium for Ocean Leadership, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), NASA, and NOAA. Registration is required. Please register using the link above.

New York City has been a proven leader in long-term sustainability planning, but Hurricane Sandy was a profound wake-up call for all New Yorkers that showed how vulnerable the City was to extreme weather events. NYC's Office of Recovery and Resiliency is charged with leading the City’s efforts to build a stronger, more resilient New York and implementing recommendations laid out in ‘One New York: The Plan for a Strong and just City.’ Where does the city stand now in the implementation of its plan? What else can the city do to be more resilient and protect New Yorkers from the harmful impacts of extreme events? Moderated by the Earth Institute’s Steven Cohen, and featuring Curtis Cravens, George Deodatis, Kate Orff, and Adam Sobel, this panel discussion will focus on how New York City – and other cities like it – can take steps to become stronger and more resilient in the face of climate change. Co-sponsored by the Earth Institute and the MPA-ESP Program. Reception to follow.
