On March 24-25, 1965, the first teach-in was held at the University of Michigan to protest the Vietnam War, and it inspired many subsequent teach-ins. Fast forward to May 7, 2023, and the first annual A2 Climate Teach-In aims to build on this legacy by addressing the climate crisis. The event is free to attend and is not just about teaching and learning, but also about community building and creating momentum for action. The goal is to bring together individuals, climate action organizations, congregations, local government, and higher education to learn from each other, support each other, and find new ways to collaborate. The agenda includes keynote speakers, tracks dedicated to different topics, and networking sessions with local climate action groups. The teach-in aims to encourage individuals to take action and not rely on leaders to solve the climate crisis, ending with the quote from Bill McKibben: “The most important thing an individual can do for climate change is be less of an individual. Join together with other people in movements large enough to effect changes in policy and economics that might actually move the system enough to matter.”
