Climate Change Education and Climate Justice


Climate Justice & Climate Literacy for All

Climate education can arm citizens with the essential knowledge and skills they will need to cope with climate change and take action in their own communities. This is especially important in frontline communities: Although climate change affects everyone, its most deadly consequences often disproportionately hit lower-income populations, especially those living in areas prone to increasingly severe storms. 


Climate change is about so much more than rising temperatures. Its consequences are far-reaching and they're intensifying. Responding to the challenges created by climate change will take an all-hands-on-deck approach—and educators of every stripe, working in settings across the educational spectrum, will have a big role to play. 

No matter what your role as an educator—science teacher, naturalist, community organizer, activist—NAAEE can help you develop and reach your climate literacy goals. Check out the links below for information about all aspects of climate education, including resources focusing on climate justice and health, legislative efforts to improve climate literacy, research into effective education strategies, and much more. We'll be adding more information as it becomes available, so be sure to check back from time to time!
