Presidio Graduate School (PGS) has a new program to bring climate change education to K-12 classrooms nationwide. PGS is the country’s longest-running school dedicated to equipping professionals to envision, design, and build a more equitable, more sustainable future.

We are on a mission to ensure that all students leave high school with essential knowledge of climate change and a clear understanding of what they can do to address it. To realize that vision, we have launched the nation’s first facilitated online course specifically designed to equip K-12 educators with the tools and confidence to incorporate climate change education into their current curriculum, no matter their grade level or subject.

Teachers who enroll in the Climate Change Essentials for All Educators will:  

  • Engage with the key tenets of climate science; the human impacts of climate change, particularly for communities of color; and the paths to climate solutions  
  • Join a growing community of educators committed to climate change education  
  • Complete up to 60 hours of professional development in just nine weeks 

Go to presidio.edu/teachclimate for details on course content and structure. Start dates for the course in 2021 are June 21, July 12, and September 13.
