Our Climate. Our Future., a multimedia experience

Alliance For Climate Education

Our Climate. Our Future. is a multimedia experience that will bring climate education into schools across the U.S. and beyond. Building off the award-winning live ACE Assembly that has reached almost two million students since 2009, this resource will engage and educate young people on climate science and solutions through animation, multimedia storytelling, interactive trivia, music, opportunities to take action and more.

In 2014, ACE piloted a virtual version of the assembly with ClimateChange LIVE, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the US Forest Service. That pilot reached over 200,000 students in one month and won awards including a gold Hermes Creative Award, Gold A bronze 36th Annual Telly Award and an Award of Distinction from The Communicator Awards.

What is ACE?

Goals: 

Our goals are to reach 700,000 students by end of 2016 and to inspire 10% of those students to join the ACE Student Network and continue to take action. Through pre and post surveys, we intend to measure changes in the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of the student audience.

High Level Impact: 

Our desired impact is to twofold: First to educate a new, diverse generation of young people on the science of climate change. We believe an educated populous is a critical step toward sustained climate action. Second, to use Our Climate. Our Future. to ignite a million youth-led conversations about climate change and inspire action by youth and their communities nationwide.
