Our Climate Kids program has expanded to include a new module, “Resilient Roots: Connecting Climate and Food Systems.” As part of this effort, the Climate Science Alliance team is working to support our partners and other local stakeholders to provide outreach and educational materials for our community exploring the intersection of climate change, food, and agriculture.
TAKING ROOT WITH THE YOUTH
Regional climate impacts, such as variable precipitation and extreme temperatures, all threaten the food security and well-being of our communities. Through our Climate Kids program, we are helping to bring the climate perspective to the food system and educate our communities on the issues and actions they can take to make a difference.
We have created resources in the form of curriculum and outreach activities that address climate impacts on our local food. We will integrate this into our popular traveling trunks prog system and put it together in a way that is accessible to a broader audience.
