10 HOURS OF CLIMATE AND JUSTICE EDUCATION IN ONE SCHOOL YEAR
Pledge to #Teach10Hours4Climate!
Did you know that students in the United States spend just two hours per school year, on average, learning about the climate crisis? According to UNESCO, only half of the national curricula in the world have a reference to climate change.
National Wildlife Federation and Bard College’s Graduate Programs in Sustainability launched #Teach10Hours4Climate in 2022 to increase the amount of time – five-fold – that K-12 students spend learning about this existential topic and gain the knowledge and skills they need to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Ten hours for climate education per school year sounds like a modest request – and it definitely is, given the scale of the crisis. But it’s an achievable start.
Use this downloadable #Teach10Hours4Climate Guide, complete with worksheets and links to curriculum resources, to help you meet your 10 hours.
