Learn about TownGreen2025's Climate Change Curriculum

Climate change is a reality, and is affecting all of us now, and is projected to intensify during the coming decades. The changes will affect how we all live our lives, from where we live and the fuel we use, to how and where our food is grown. Most of us have bits and pieces of information surrounding climate change, some of it well founded in science, some not. Every student, from the brightest most engaged future scientist to our less academically involved students, needs well designed climate change education to understand, and adapt to the scientific, social, and economic realities of our changing climate.

Over the past year there has been an increase in climate change information available, but well-designed instruction within most schools has not kept pace. In addition climate change is a new topic for many teachers, and a complex topic that encompasses many disciplines.
