Santa Cruz Climate Speakers


We specialize in Climate Change education curriculum tailored to fit the needs of a specific class.  We can act as the teachers but prefer to work with you and help you be set up for teaching another year. To date we've worked successfully with high schools and middle schools.

Our goal is to provide information, inspire dialogue, and motivate solutions. Our aim is to have all local students graduate with literacy in Climate Change.  

 Our public Climate Change site scruzclimate.org - events, campaigns, blog

The future is theirs and we need to protect it!           Newest Teacher Flyer
