Space Where Climate Change Action Becomes Youth Action
The Climate Initiative (TCI) provides tools to bring climate change education into your classroom and community. TCI’s Learning Lab includes freemultidisciplinary modules that introduce climate issues through the high school classroom and bring them to life in a student’s local landscape.
Teachers can unlock access to the modules by first reviewing the teaching method. They will learn Learning Lab’s three-lens approach to environmental issues, ways to connect with local stakeholders to make their lessons have greater impact, and ways to design climate action projects to give their students a powerful voice in their community.
Educators can register for Learning Lab by October 15, 2022, to receive a $300 stipend to implement TCI’s climate change modules in their high school curriculum. After completing the Teacher Modules, educators will receive access to the following TCI Learning Lab Modules: “Renewable Energy,” “Invasive Species,” “Sea Level Rise,” “Floods & Droughts,” “Wildfires”, “Climate Impacts & Solutions with En-ROADS,” and “Climate Justice & Equity.” And just launched is a new Learning Lab: “Agriculture & Climate Change.” The modules include week-by-week lesson plans, resources, and studentactivity guides.
“On Safari With Nala”is a video series presented by nine-year-old Nala from Machaba Camp in Botswana. Each week Nala takes viewers on an exciting African adventure. Episodes include everything from exploring the Okavango Delta in a mokoro to learning about African wildlife.
Conservation and protection of wildlife species and their habitats are at the core of the Wildlife.net mission. The group’s focus is on building a community and network of members from around the world who care about the environment humans share with wildlife species and are inspired to protect nature and integrate nature into their communities.
