Keynotes, Presentations, Workshops

Julie Johnston, GreenHeart's Sustainability Education Consultant, specializes in greening the heart of teaching and the education system. She can present on this topic in a keynote address, a virtual (online) seminar, or an in-person workshop. Julie usually presents to educators who teach kindergarten/primary to senior secondary grades, but her audiences have also included students of all ages, school board trustees and other stakeholders, parent groups, university faculty and students, and the public.

In August 2012, Julie took the train to San Francisco where she trained with the Climate Reality Project. She is now a Climate Reality presenter, and offers a slide show on the climate change emergency that includes important ways the field of education can contribute to solutions.

Dr. Peter D. Carter, GreenHeart's science advisor, makes presentations on the climate change emergency at community forums and academic conferences. He has presented on today's committed (unavoidable) global warming, Arctic carbon feedbacks, ocean warming and acidification, and the impacts of climate disruption on food security.

Our presentations are compelling, thought-provoking and inspiring.
