Ask the Scientists: Environmental Justice Conversation for Kids
Saturday, January 16, 2021
10:00 AM-10:30 AM
What does environmental justice mean to our youngest citizens? What do they think about the issues facing our communities? What ideas do they have to help create a just and equitable world? Join Academy educators, Philadelphia experts and area community members for a kid-led conversation about environmental justice. Let your voice be heard, or listen and learn, as we explore what kids think and feel about their future. Find out ways to start meaningful conversations with family, friends and public officials on the topics that mean the most to you. This program is suitable for children ages 8-11 but all are welcome; for our younger guests, we request adult assistance to enable questioning.
This panel is moderated by Senior Women In Natural Sciences (WINS) Explainer Angie Albarouki, of String Theory Charter School, and features WINS Alumna Zakia Elliott, Program Manager at Philadelphia Climate Works.
