Climate Generation's Letter to Climate Change Educators

The school year is officially upon us, which means you’re planning lessons, learning names, and grading papers. And we’re here to help! We just launched our newest free resource, Green Careers for a Changing Climate, a short documentary and discussion guide to introduce your students to the importance of Green STEM Careers as a solution to climate change.

Green STEM careers (from solar and wind installers to environmental lawyers) require STEM competency and contribute to a low carbon economy. Green STEM career opportunities are rapidly increasing and our students need tangible opportunities that will prepare them for the workforce of tomorrow.

Want your voice to be heard? Participate in our #TeachClimate365 campaign — our challenge for all of you to bring climate change into your classroom all year, not just for a week-long unit or end of the year add-on! Connect with us this school year as we share resources, step-by-step activities, and reasons why we #TeachClimate365 on Facebook and Instagram every Wednesday. Don’t forget to join our monthly #TeachClimate Network meetings for cli-fi reads and education conversations! Share with us why you think it’s important or how you #TeachClimate365 on your social media platform of choice— don’t forget to tag @ClimateGenOrg and use the hashtag!
