Focus the Nation Global Warming 'Teach-In'

Support of the green movement can range from LEEDS construction pledges on campuses to community recycling or even just changing light bulbs. However, on Jan 31st, a nation-wide 'teach-in' with faculty, students and staff on more than 1100 campuses will engage in discussion related to global warming problems and solutions.

Focus the Nation is organizing a national teach-in on global warming solutions for America—raising awareness at colleges, universities, high schools, middle schools, places of worship, civic organizations and businesses, and directly engaging millions of students and citizens with the nation’s decision-makers.  Focus the Nation is an educational initiative that also involves civic engagement.

Each Focus team will invite local, state and federal political leaders to come to a campus and participate in a non-partisan, round-table discussion of global warming solutions. US Senators and members of Congress, state representatives, mayors and city councilors will be receiving invitations to speak about global warming. Every institution will also vote on their top five national priorities for global warming action, producing a campus and citizen endorsed policy agenda for 2008.
