Reasons I’m excited about this project:
Students and teachers in my community have been clamoring for instruction material and tools to better understand how and why climate change is affecting the health of our communities now. I’m elated to work with this respected, thoughtful and solutions focused team to provide vitally important climate change education, approaching the topic in relevant, recognizable, and equitable ways for all learners. I’m especially excited to dig into data collected from reliable sources, learn from it, and visualize it for broad engagement in practical, meaningful and inspiring ways.
