Climate Education

Climate education is a crucial component of supporting Maine's climate initiatives and goals. Climate education will foster a generation of Mainers that are ready to take on the worlds challenges and support all Maine communities. This can look many different ways. It can be accessible to all through interdisciplinary and age-appropriate content.
