NOAA has posted the files for a great new classroom/teacher/community workshop resource for coastal cities: Beat the Uncertainty. Planning Climate Resilient Cities. This simulation has been field-tested with many education groups and is a great way to start conversations about making cities more resilient to climate impacts.
On January 29, 2017, there’s a great opportunity to participate in NOAA’s Book Club and become familiar with an anthology of Climate Fiction. Consider using this opportunity to delve into Climate Change in a new way – and think about ways you could engage new audiences using fiction reading and discussions to open the door to environmental learning and action.
The NOAA Office of Education has issued a competitive funding opportunity (NOAA-SEC-OED-2018-2005455) for projects designed to support the education of the public and/or K-12 students so they are knowledgeable of the ways in which their community can become more resilient to extreme weather events and/or other environmental hazards, and become involved in achieving that resilience. The deadline for pre-applications (which are required) is December 19, 2017. The deadline for full applications is April 6, 2018. Pre-applications and full applications must be submitted online via Grants.gov.
