Ecology and Education Summit to address environmental literacy
Date:9/27/2010

Registration is now open to the press for the Ecology and Education Summitco-organized by the Ecological Society of America (ESA) and National Education Association, with more than twenty national organizationswhich will be held October 14-15, 2010 in Washington, D.C. The summit "Environmental Literacy for a Sustainable World" brings together educators, scientists, and policy professionals from a wide variety of sectorsincluding academia, business, agriculture, government, the health industry and the mediato focus on environmental education and opportunities for progress.

Environmental literacy is concerned with the ability to understand ecological, biological and physical systems, as they connect with human systems, and the practice of informed environmental decision making. The Ecology and Education Summit is moving toward a Decadal Action Plan for environmental literacy outlining immediate next steps and long-term goals.

In his Keynote Address "Eyewitness to Global Warming," Will Stegerthe National Geographic Society's first Explorer-in-Residencewill recount his experiences observing the effects of global climate change. Steger has traversed tens of thousands of miles by kayak and dogsled for more than 40 years during expeditions; these include a trip to the North Pole and TransAntarctica in the 1980s, accomplishing the first surface crossing of the Arctic Ocean in a single season and tackling the North Pole solo in the 1990s. A recent trip took Steger to the Inuit communities of Nunavut at the Arctic Transect to learn about traditional ecological knowledge.

Steger will draw on photographs, in addition to compelling data and satellite imagery, documenting the deterioration of the polar ice caps and showing how climate change is affecting people in this region. Steger is the recipient of the National Geographic Society's John Oliver La Gorce Medal and the Explorers Club's Finn Ronne Memorial Award.
