WorldTeach Climate and Ocean Education Symposium

WorldTeach is concerned about how we are harming the future with our collective, negative impact on the world’s ocean. WorldTeach wants to do its part to promote awareness and protect the coastal and marine ecosystems.

We all depend on the same ocean. It is the very “foundation of human life” according to the United Nations’ Convention on the Law of the Sea.

This is why WorldTeach has teamed up with Stevenson School and the Monterey Bay Research Aquarium Institute (MBARI) to offer the first Symposium on Ocean and Climate Education. Please consider joining from June 19th-23, 2017 in Pebble Beach, CA as we learn about the latest in marine and climate science, and are guided in using data to educate our own communities about the fate of our ocean. Invited guests include field researchers from Stanford Hopkins Marine Station and representatives from environmental and education agencies in the Marshall Islands, American Samoa and Micronesia.

The Symposium partners are generously contributing their time and resources to this effort, enabling us to price this conference at cost for $350, including meals, accommodations, outdoor excursion, and all symposium fees. Here is a brochure with more information. To register, email to indicate your interest to symposium@worldteach.org before May 20th.

 

Mama Hope Application Deadline EXTENDED through May 5!

Mama Hope has extended its Global Advocate Program application deadline to MAY 5 in order to accommodate new placement opportunities with recent partners in Kenya and Tanzania. This means there are a few more spots available for individuals with interest and experience in education, girls’ empowerment, community development, public health and women’s micro-finance. Class 13 will kick off on June 8th with a 5-day orientation in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

To get a feeling for what life is like as a Global Advocate, read Megan’s most recent – beautifully written –  blog from her field placement in Kisumu, Kenya.

“My favorite spot in Kisumu is the large sprawl of land, overlooking Lake Victoria, that is the home to David Omondi’s evolving eco-farm. Right now, it is covered in rocks and weeds, but as I stand there listening to the flaps of the greenhouses smack against their metallic skeletons, I can see those rocks and weeds transform into the demonstration plots that light up David’s eyes when he talks about his dream farm. We both stare at the climbing beans that are spiraling on their own accord around vertical wooden poles and agree with child-like wonder that plants are so incredibly smart.”

Applications are due May 5, but the sooner you apply the sooner they can begin your interview process! Please email katie@mamahope.org with any questions or concerns about the program or application.

P.S. Nervous about fundraising $20k? Not sure if you can balance your full or part-time job while in the program? Want more info about how we determine in-country placements? Check out the FAQ page to get all of these answers and more!
