Abstract: 

For ten years Climate Generation has been building the climate literacy and confidence of educators through professional development opportunities. We believe that educators are critical messengers of climate and that energy literacy and climate change education is part of the solution. In addition, we believe that schools and nonformal learning centers have the opportunity to provide powerful examples of sustainability in communities. We also recognize that climate change can be difficult topic to bring to a classroom, museum or nature center. We plan our professional development opportunities with these things in mind; demonstrating to educators how climate change fits with their academic standards, building their knowledge in climate science and their skills in climate change education and developing their abilities to deal with adversity.

Climate Generation is pleased to offer an annual Summer Institute for Climate Change Education. This is our premiere professional development opportunity for formal and non-formal educators across the country to build your comfort, confidence and competence to bring climate change into your educational setting.

CEUS are available at the multi-day Institutes, which are usually held in the Twin Cities metro during the summer. Check the SEEK calendar to find the dates of this year's Institute!
