Gain the skills, tools, and resources to teach climate change in all subject areas at the Summer Institute for Climate Change Education

At the Summer Institute, educators and leaders from across North America come together to increase their confidence and competence in climate change education. At our 16th annual Institute in July 2021, we hosted more than 330 educators, presenters, and cohort leaders alongside The Wild Center’s Youth Climate Program and NOAA’s Climate Office.

Well worth my time. Virtual was excellent and allowed for easy participation. Great resources in every session. Impressive.” – 2021 Summer Institute Attendee

70+ presenters were featured in concurrent workshops and discussion-based sessions, all centered around our theme “A Regrounding In Truth.” 12 cohort leaders from across the country hosted one day of the Institute for educators from their regions. Each focused on local climate change causes, impacts, and solutions and explored resources, activities, and materials that educators can use in their classrooms.
