*Focus the Nation* is a national global warming educational initiative, coordinating teams of faculty, students and staff at over a thousand colleges and universities and high schools in the United States to participate in a nationwide, nonpartisan discussion on the theme of climate stabilization. The project will also include the participation of religious, civic and business organizations, and will culminate on Jan. 31, 2008, in one-day symposia to be held simultaneously on campuses across the country.  Focus the Nation could be a catalyzing event on par with Earth Day 1970, helping turn the national conversation about global warming from fatalism to constructive engagement with the challenge of our generation.

Who should attend the informational meetings? All faculty, students and staff from K-12 through the University level interested in an innovative national experiment in interdisciplinary education; representatives of church, business or civic organizations; concerned citizens.

Focus the Nation is directed by Dr. Eban Goodstein, Professor of Economics at Lewis & Clark College ( ~eban) .  For more information, please visit www.focusthenation. org/test. html , contact info@focusthenation .org, or call 503-343-6863.
