2019

This year, the MFSM, again with the support of the HOPE Center, continues its work of advocating and promoting scientific principles in policymaking with the Teach-In 2019: Moving Forward. We elected 10 scientists to Congress during the midterm elections, illustrating the importance of science to democratic principles and human progress. But the work is not over, with the 2020 elections ahead of us and many science-deniers still in charge of the status quo.

PARTNERSHIP


The CLEO Institute

The CLEO Institute’s Founder and Executive Director, Caroline Lewis, was a high school teacher and principal for 22 years. She moved on to become the Director of Education at Fairchild Botanic Garden, where she created programs and expanded outreach by 800%.

Lewis frequently speaks at summits and conferences and has influenced environmental education efforts in institutions around the United States and internationally. In December 2012, she was appointed to the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Environmental Education Advisory Council. In 2013, she was one of twelve individuals recognized as a White House Community Resilience Champion of Change for building climate resilience in the community through her work at CLEO.

CLEO’s lead advisor is Dr. Harold Wanless, a nationally renowned scientist, professor and department chair of Geological Sciences at the University of Miami. Scores of other scientists, educators, leaders, specialists (government and non-governmental, local and national) also provide tremendous support and expertise, as does CLEO’s staff, strong Board of Directors, Advisory Council, Youth Task Force, and Volunteer Corps.
