Webinar: Teen Earth Optimism – Exploring Climate Change and Land Use
The Zoom webinar with Kimberly Komatsu, Melinda Peters, Kelsey Desmond, and D.C. teenager Amen aired August 18, 2020, as part of the Teen Tuesday: Earth Optimism series. Watch a recording in the player above.
In this video, we explore land use and how our landscapes are transformed and changed by humans in different ways. We discuss the connections between climate change, urban forestry, and environmental justice with urban foresters from Casey Trees, a Smithsonian ecologist, and a local D.C. teenager. Our guests will help you apply what they’ve learned in their work to make positive change in your own community, no matter where you live!
