The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc will hold a teach-in Thursday to educate the public about global warming.
UW-Manitowoc is one of more than 500 schools and organizations nationwide that plan to participate in the National Teach-In on Global Warming Solutions.
Ryan Schryver of Clean Wisconsin will give the keynote speech at UW-Manitowoc at 9:30 a.m. Thursday. A series of panel presentations during the day will address activism, science, pollution and food issues related to global warming.
Organizers say holding the teach-in during President Barack Obama‘s first 100 days in office will send a message that the environment should be one of his top priorities.
Community members are invited to attend the events at UW-Manitowoc.
