The Climate Science Alliance is honored and excited to receive a 2020 Environmental Champions Grant from San Diego Gas and Electric!

This generous grant will support the Alliance’s Climate Kids Program and the transition of our materials to our new online interface - Climate Kids CONNECTS. As our world begins to shift, we understand the need to adapt for an emergent digital community. By enhancing our online outreach efforts with Climate Kids CONNECTS we can build capacity and continued educator support for climate education in a world that is moving online. With this program we look forward to supporting our community in the following ways:

>> Supporting Youth: We will transition a set of our Climate Kids modules and develop additional climate education activities to be available online. Resources will be digitized in the form of videos (available in English and Spanish) and online interactives to support student learning.  

>> Supporting Educators: We will host and record virtual trainings for our core curriculum and make these available. This will help build capacity in the San Diego region and allow us to train educators as the Climate Kids program expands. Lastly, we will support project-based learning classrooms with virtual climate presentations and resources while developing online content alongside students. 

>> Supporting Community: We will initiate digital climate outreach campaigns and partner with online media outlets to create content focused on climate impacts to the region and community-based solutions.
