The Journey From High Schoolers To Climate Leaders In Two Semesters Or Less | ThinkProgress
...as we, the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE), start back up, we’re getting climate change to top of mind, too.About ACE | ACE
Since 2009, we’ve been working with high schoolers – with an assembly, student action programs and leadership trainings – in climate science and solutions. We’ve reached more than a million high schoolers and seen the first of this generation of leaders step up to tackle some issues that people twice their age are intimidated by.
They’re vocal. They’re influential. And, they’re able to vote for the first time in the next four years — some are getting ready for their first election in less than 50 days. Victories such as California’s Prop 23 movement and local coal plant closures are rooted in young, diverse audiences caring and being connected. So we want to make sure that there’s a steady stream of young, diverse audiences engaged on the solutions to climate change.
ACE educators present climate science that resonates with students via an award-winning in-school assembly that blends storytelling, cutting edge animation, music and video...
When the ACE Assembly ends, many students are ready and eager to take action, and our Student Action Programs help get them started.
