Alex Waneke presented the Oceans Traveling Trunk that our club sponsored. She talked also about the Climate Kids program and the Climate Science Alliance.
During this weekly meeting we were fortunate to listen to Alex and to learn more about the actions of the Climate Science Alliance and the Climate Kids. Alex showed us the Ocean Traveling Trunk, that we sponsored, with all the contents and the purpose of this.
The mission of the Climate Science Alliance is to safeguard natural and human communities in the face of a changing climate. They do this through leading activities and creating partnerships which increase awareness of climate change impacts, promote solutions, and facilitate action. Since their beginnings in 2015 the Climate Science Alliance has grown to partner with over 200 organizations, collaborate on 6 large-scale research projects, and engage with over 100,000 community members.
See the Impact Report attached, and this review produced under the umbrella of the Climate Science Alliance for more info.
Climate Kids, an initiative of Climate Science Alliance, is a series of community level collaborative projects that provide youth education on climate change through science activities, storytelling, and art. Each Climate Kids project brings together local artists, scientists, educators, and storytellers to engage students of all socioeconomic levels and inspire them to become environmental stewards.
Climate Kids Traveling Trunks provide all the resources you need to teach climate science in the classroom. Each trunk includes background information, lesson plans, powerpoints, activities, and materials to increase climate literacy for K-12th grade youth.
