Digital Earth Academy: Climate Change

Program Description

Evidence of climate change is all around us: rising temperatures, shrinking glaciers, and more  extreme weather tell the story of a planet in transition. Where on the Earth’s surface can we  observe these changes? How are humans creating, experiencing, and adapting to these  effects?  What useful strategies do we have in our tool kit to help us move towards a resilient  future? Join Museum experts for an upbeat virtual expedition across our changing world, guided  by your questions and reflections.
