Climate Kids-Mexico Hosts Fashion Show at Ecoparque Environmental Day Festival

On June 2nd, 2017, Climate Kids-Mexico (CKM) spread a message of environmental stewardship at the Ecoparque Environmental Day Festival in Tijuana, B.C., Mexico by hosting a "Pasarela" Fashion Show with outfits created out of recycled materials. CKM Ambassadors created unique costumes out of cans, plastic bottles, plastic bags, and old clothes to represent the sea, fish, sea birds, and seaweed. Students walked the runway in these thought-provoking costumes to bring awareness to climate change and ocean and marine health. The Alliance is excited by the great work being done by our partners in Baja California! #ClimateKids #ClimateKidsMexico #BuildingCommunity

Local Brownie Troop Completes Climate Kids Badge

The Climate Science Alliance is excited to share that through a partnership with Girl Scouts, a local brownie troop participated in our Climate Kids program and earned a new badge. The brownies learned about San Diego Carnivores and how scientists are studying ways they can protect the animals from climate change. The troop completed activities where they learned about the "10 Things" they can do to help the Earth. The troop then received Climate Kids badges to add to their vests of achievement. The Brownies have the opportunity to earn more badges by becoming Ambassadors and sharing what they have learned with others at Alliance community events. #ClimateKids #BuildingCommunity
