Climate change is one of the planet’s most pressing concerns, and its effects are more intense in New Jersey than in many other places worldwide. Recognizing that education is a critical agent in addressing the issue of climate change, New Jersey was the first in the nation to incorporate K-12 climate change education across content areas in its 2020 Student Learning Standards. The goal is to help students make informed decisions by developing an understanding of the causes and impacts of global warming and how to adapt to climate change.

  • Climate Change Primer
  • Unpacking the Climate Change Student Learning Standards
  • Examples of Integrating Climate Change Education into Existing Curriculum Across Content Areas

This event is for middle and high school teachers, supervisors and administrators in all content areas. Attendees will earn 7 PD credit hours.
