At the conference, Atkins will be speaking with Dr. John Pipoly about "Living Laboratories: Mitigating/Adapting to Climate Change," in order to demonstrate the ways parks and their partners can adapt to environmental issues and raise conservation awareness by engaging students with hands-on, experiential, research-based STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) curricula.

Dr. Pipoly holds a Ph.D in systematic biology and has published approximately 150 original research papers. His work to enhance STEAM and environmental education for sustainable development has provided a truly innovative learning experience.

Through Atkins and Pipoly's lecture at the conference, Broward County Parks and Recreation hopes to encourage agencies to implement these programs in order to create a new wave of environmental leaders and position parks as incubators for the environmental revolution needed to combat climate change.
