Earth to Sky is excited to announce that five new regional teams have been selected to receive specialized training and to support interpreters and informal educators developing their climate communication skills.
- Team Greater Boston
- Team Niobrara River Watershed
- Team New Mexico
- Hawaiʻi Hui
- Team Southern Appalachian Highlands
The five teams were chosen via a competitive selection process. Spanning the country, the five new teams represent several federal and state agencies, universities, city government, nonprofits, and partnerships. Collectively representing centuries of experience in interpretation, education, science, training, communications, and networking, the new regional leaders will bring valuable expertise to the entire Earth to Sky community.
The teams will travel to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in October 2022 for the Earth to Sky Academy, a week of training in NASA climate science, communication techniques, and Earth to Sky methodology. After completing the Academy, each team will offer one or more climate communication courses tailored to the specific needs in their region, while serving as a resource and focal point for their community of interpreters and informal educators on an ongoing basis.
