Advancing Climate Change Education

Climate change education should incorporate strategies that are place-based, deeply rooted in science, and focus on empowering action. The Maine Environmental Education Association is committed to helping Maine’s young people become environmentally literate; cultivating innovation, prosperity, and an informed citizenry with the knowledge and skills to address future challenges brought on by climate change.

What if climate change education were no longer about the obvious – drive less, recycle more, buy local – but instead focused on creating innovative solutions to mitigate impacts and adapt to our changing ecosystems?
