Focus on Solutions

Imagine a conversation that engages thousands of students and other community members about their shared future. Now imagine the dialogue leading to real action--action that just might save the planet. That's the idea behind Focus the Nation: Global Warming Solutions for America. Here's how it works. On Jan. 31, at K-12 schools and college campuses across the country, business as usual will be replaced by a national teach-in on global warming. The emphasis is on solutions so that students will come away informed and prepared to act. This is a chance to put real-world, project-based learning strategies into action. Intrigued? Check out the Focus the Nation site to learn more about webcasts for K-12 schools, video chats with politicians, and the wealth of resources available to help inform the conversation. And if your school is taking part, please tell us about your plans--and the actions your students decide to take.
