Social Media Campaign inspiring teachers to prepare students to be part of the solution to climate change

August 20 - September 20, 2019

#Youth are demanding to learn about #climatechange. Join the #Teach4Climate coalition & teach for tomorrow’s leaders Why #Teach4Climate? Climate change will affect almost every aspect of human society.  Follow the next 30 days of campaign to #Teach4Climate this year. Relevance drive learning.

Today's generation is the first generation to feel the impacts of climate change and the last that can really do something about it. Teaching young people about climate change – its causes, effects, and what we can do about it – is vital. Addressing climate change is a multi-generational problem that demands both immediate action and long term skills, understanding and solutions.

With another school year rapidly approaching, a flotilla of partners are working together to support educators in enhancing the climate literacy of American students and citizens. The campaign will demonstrate new and innovative ways to expand climate change learning opportunities for students, and will equip educators with science-based information and resources.

This coordinated social media effort is a commitment to education, engagement, and lifting up innovative and effective climate change education resources and opportunities. In order to create a powerful presence during this next school year, we need your help! This toolkit provides you with all the information you need to engage in the #Teach4Climate social media campaign, and equips you with a list of important climate education initiatives taking place in the nation and beyond during the 2019-2020 school year. This document will be kept up to date throughout the campaign, so don’t forget to check back!
