We educate youth, the general public, community leaders and policy makers about the current and future damages from human impact on climate, and address available solutions to mitigate and adapt to the changes.
Climate K-12 Education
We partner with one of the top private schools in Mississippi and several Jackson public schools to develop a comprehensive K-12 science-based climate curriculum. The curriculum will include local environmental examples and draw upon local, national and international experts. We intend to offer this curriculum and training sessions to all interested public school science teachers. We will provide small financial incentives to support efforts
inherent to implementing the curriculum and provide additional help in the form of after school climate programs. The after school programs will be powered by student volunteers from local colleges and universities. The ultimate goal of this project is to implement this curriculum across all public school districts in the state.
College Level Education
We offer an interdisciplinary course on climate change free of charge at any interested higher education institution in Mississippi. The course is taught by a Yale-educated PhD climate policy specialist with extensive academic and teaching experience. National and local specialists in a variety of disciplines related to climate change present a range of guest lectures.
We organize events, presentations and movie showings that are open to the general public and address audiences with minimal or no knowledge of climate change. Currently, we are partnering with a Jackson-based liberal arts college, local independent bookstores and several churches.
