Investigate Climate Issues

During this program, youth participants will investigate climate issues while using local data and participating in citizen science projects to examine the local environment, evaluate climate impacts, and identify solutions to protect health and promote community resilience.

Build Community Resilience

Participants also will work to build stronger communities by learning skills to make a difference while working alongside professionals in environmental, health and climate fields to develop an action project that supports community resilience.
