Nicole Rom, Executive Director
In early December, the Will Steger Foundation co-hosted a screening of Antarctica: On the Edge at the St. Anthony Main Theatre, including a panel discussion after the screening with filmmakers Gary Smaby, Jon Bowermaster and our founder, Will Steger.
It was quite an honor to be invited to a White House convening of top leaders from across the “federal family,” the nonprofit sector, universities, professional associations, media, and philanthropy to discuss ways we can collectively advance climate change education.
WSF Executive Director Nicole Rom joined The White House OSTP for a Climate Education and Literacy Roundtable as part of the launch of a new Climate Education and Literacy Initiative to help connect American students with the best-available, science-based information about climate change.
