CLEAN Network Teleconferences

Each Tuesday at 1:00pm Eastern Time (12pm Central, 11am Mountain, 10am Pacific) CLEAN Network members meet on a teleconference call to update each other about their climate literacy projects, upcoming events, and funding opportunities and share information about best practices, key teaching/learning resources, and the development of collaborative activities. Often these teleconferences include special presentations by members and guests.
To participate in these teleconferences, you need to be a member of the CLEAN Network. To join the Network, sign up here Join CLEAN Network.

Members receive an email alert from the CLEAN Network listserv with information about each week's teleconference.

Upcoming 2022 Teleconference

September 19th: Why Art Is the Best Argument by Aviva Rahmani

Presentation: Why Art Makes the Best Argument (PowerPoint 2007 (.pptx) 180.8MB Sep19 22)

Bio: Dr. Aviva Rahmani's longstanding interdisciplinary art practice focuses on ecological restoration as artmaking. Her projects have won numerous grants and fellowships and have been written and exhibited internationally. She is an affiliate of the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado at Boulder, gained her PhD from the University of Plymouth, UK, crossing over environmental sciences, technology and studio art, and received her BFA/MFA from CalArts. She is the author of Divining Chaos: The Autobiography of an Idea which explores how art can help us see our way out of a chaotic and declining world. Her current project "Blued Trees" resists ecocide by challenging the legal basis to build fossil fuel infrastructure. Rahmani is co-founder of the ecoart listserv, and co-editor of "Ecoart in Action: Activities, Case Studies, and Provocations for Classrooms and Communities."
