Climate Action Field School

The Lake Superior Climate Action Field School is being developed in partnership with the Lake Superior Living Labs Network, Lakehead University, University of Minnesota Duluth, Michigan Technological University, Algoma University and community partners and scholars across the Lake Superior Watershed. The Field School will support a diverse group of young people, who are poised to become regional and national climate leaders, as they participate in an experiential training program of virtual workshops, community site visits, and events in coastal communities around the Lake Superior Watershed in the summer of 2021.

The field school will be implemented using a hybrid virtual and on-site design that will consist of hubs in four locations: Thunder Bay, ON – Sault Ste Marie, ON – Houghton, MI – and Duluth, MN. During the Field School participants in each hub will join together in person daily, conduct independent site visits, digitally document the experiences, and connect and share across hubs virtually for workshops.  This is a free, in-person event, and open to ages 18+.
