Alliance Invited to Present at 2019 National Tribal Forum on Air Quality

The Climate Science Alliance was recently invited to present at the 2019 National Tribal Forum on Air Quality, co-sponsored by the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals and the National Tribal Air Association, to discuss Climate Kids - Tribes and how we are working alongside Tribes in the Southwest to educate youth about climate impacts.

Climate change impacts tribal communities in a variety of different ways including drought, water availability, and heat events which affect food security, public health, and natural resources with social, cultural, and biological significance. Climate Kids-Tribes is a collaborative partnership with tribal nations across the Southwest. We bring activities and curriculum to tribal earth day events, youth trips, school programs, and community events. In this interactive and hands-on session, participants came away with lessons on how to deliver climate messaging and activities, as well as access to resources that support dynamic climate engagement efforts.

The National Tribal Forum on Air Quality (NTFAQ) provides environmental professionals from Tribes, EPA, and other organizations an opportunity to meet and discuss current policies, regulatory initiatives, and technical topics in air quality. The NTFAQ is a cooperative endeavor co-sponsored by The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) and the National Tribal Air Association (NTAA), made possible by funding from US EPA and generous sponsors. The goal of the NTFAQ is to bring together tribes and others working to address air quality concerns; through interacting and connecting with like-minded colleagues, attendees are able to gain a deeper understanding of relevant issues, build their professional networks, and strengthen personal connections.
