About the Program

Build student confidence to take action on climate change. The Climate Action Projects Summit series is for educators who are ready to support the next generation of changemakers with tools and resources to identify and act on climate-related opportunities in their communities.

Scientists agree that Earth’s climate is warming due to human activity. Effects include changes in global migration, food production, weather patterns, sea level rise and ocean acidification. These changes in the natural world may threaten the global economy, food availability and water security. Join us to discover opportunities to support climate-resilient communities through conservation, adaptation, mitigation, innovation and policy solutions.
