  • About

    The ever-renewing cycle of bad climate news and bummer clickbait can lead to a feeling of “climate anxiety” in today's students. Climate anxiety, or climate doom, is the result of being informed about the subject of climate change, alongside the keen awareness of one’s inability to effect change in a meaningful way. We are interested in exploring tools to sublimate climate doom with positive action. Inland Seas Education Association (ISEA) has a mission of inspiring Great Lakes stewardship in people of all ages, which means people of all ages need to be talking to one another!

    The intended outcome for attendees is to feel confident having supportive conversations with young adults experiencing climate doom.

    Inland Seas Education Association (ISEA) has provided learners of all ages with hands-on experiences aboard traditionally-rigged tall ship schooners, along the shores of the Great Lakes, and in local rivers, streams, and wetlands. As a non-profit organization located in Suttons Bay, Michigan, their mission is to inspire a lifetime of Great Lakes curiosity, stewardship, and passion in people of all ages. Their goal is to provide people with the information they need to become stewards of the Great Lakes.
