Join the Judy Genshaft Honors College and thousands around the world for the 2023 Worldwide Climate Teach-In. This year’s teach-in is focused on education and application with discussions and activities designed to help students and community members find effective solutions for the critical climate issues we all face. The day-long event on USF’s Tampa campus will feature moderated dialogues, art and research exhibitions, a career fair, and more. 

When and where

Wednesday, March 29, 2023 | 12:30 – 7 p.m.

Juniper Poplar Hall, USF Tampa Campus

All USF students can drop in on a discussion or activity to learn more about large and small-scale climate solutions!


If we don't talk about climate change, we won't act to stop it. The Worldwide Climate Teach-In gets Honors community members and our fellow Bulls talking about climate solutions. As we work together towards a more sustainable future, we’ll help mobilize thousands of people to focus on the critical climate justice work ahead, and our shared sustainable future.
