ALLIANCE FOR CLIMATE EDUCATION

Since climate change will undoubtedly affect the future of our children it’s important they learn as much as they can about the changing earth. One group helping young people in their teens and older to become engaged with the issue of climate change is the Alliance for Climate Education  (ACE)  that runs  several programs not only to teach young people about climate change but to acquire skills to be confident climate leaders.

ACE has been effectively reaching high school and college students since 2009. Their key to success is using social media in their outreach and in their programs. Action Fellowship has completed some 2000 projects  including school-wide energy audits, solar panel installations and industrial composting.

The Action Fellowship, one of the featured programs, encourages high school students and ACE members and participants who are passionate about climate change to apply. ACE is soliciting applicants for the Action Fellowships from students in Boston, New York City, Raleigh, Las Vegas and the San Francisco Bay Area. The deadline is May 30th. Students who are chosen will receive a $100 stipend per semester along with training and one-on-one mentorship from ACE staff. The goal for the fellows is to build knowledge of climate science and solutions and develop skills in public communication. The fellows work together to plan and put projects into action. The program’s long range plan is to grow a base of young advocates supporting the science, policy  and actions of climate change.

The ACE Assembly is a live, multimedia assembly presentation for high schools on climate science and solutions, produced to appeal to teenagers. A trailer for a typical ACE assembly is here.  Another trailer on the future of our climate is here.
