The mission of this symposium is to help create a sustainable future for Houston by educating our community about solutions to climate change and empowering one another to take action in our personal lives.
During the spring semester of the 2017-2018 school year, a select group of students from the St. Catherine's Adolescent Community and High School applied for a National Wildlife Federation grant in order to develop a symposium climate change. NWF awarded the students $6,500, allowing them to bring their vision for "From Knowing to Acting" to life.
Every HS and AC student is participating in the planning, and conducting research on a topic of their choosing to be presented on May 3rd. Each students has partnered with a professional mentor. These are Montessori students doing real work helping us all to see ways we can take action and be motivated to make a difference in the world.
"From Knowing to Acting" will take place Friday, May 3, 2019 at St. Catherine's Montessori. Visit www.stcathmont.org/climatechange to learn more about the symposium.
