Climate Kids Program Highlighted by Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals


The Climate Kids Program was recently highlighted by the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals for their Tribal Profiles initiative. Check out how Climate Kids is collaborating with local and regional Tribes to integrate Tribal perspectives in our climate change education and community engagement.

“Climate change affects us all, but tribes have been particularly hard-hit by the impacts of atmospheric warming and the myriad changes it brings. It isn't just Alaska Natives who experience these changes; tribal members living close to the land in the lower 48 states are also seeing dramatic changes in the world around them. From fishing impacts in the Northwest to severe water depletion in the Southwest to heightened storm events along the Gulf Coast and Eastern seaboard, tribal communities see the impacts every day, and they've long since moved past the mindset of regarding climate change as a "theory."

Climate Kids - Tribal Profile

About ITEP: The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) was created to act as a catalyst among tribal governments, research and technical resources at Northern Arizona University (NAU), various federal, state and local governments, and the private sector, in support of environmental protection of Native American natural resources. ITEP was established at NAU in 1992 with the mission to "strengthen tribal capacity and sovereignty in environmental and natural resource management through culturally relevant education, research, partnerships and policy-based services."

The Climate Science Alliance is honored to work with the ITEP team and the amazing network of Tribal partners within our research, educational, and community projects. Learn more about how we collaborate to build Tribal resilience in the face of climate change here.
