Climate Education Partners is working with community leaders to ignite interest in learning about our changing climate so we can protect the spectacular natural beauty, economic vibrancy and preserve the quality of life in San Diego, not just for today, but for all future generations.
The region is already experiencing impacts of a changing climate that challenge our precious natural resources, tourism and the regional economy. Concerned about the impacts that changes in our climate could have on the special quality of life we enjoy here, we believe that future generations deserve to enjoy the San Diego we know and love. Our goal is to come together, as individuals and as a community, to help residents learn more about the impacts of a changing climate in order to prepare for, respond to, and even reduce those impacts.
We understand that San Diegans are proud of our leadership as a region and our research confirms that we are committed to preserving our quality of life, clean air, drinking water, beaches and bays, oceans, mountains and deserts.
Designed as a dynamic collaborative of local expert scientists, educators and a wide range of community leaders, Climate Education Partners is conducting a range of educational activities to engage the community. These include listening to what San Diegans care about and what they want to know, developing practical resources on local impacts, conducting climate impact tours, hosting roundtable discussions and supporting regional leaders and their communities with their planning needs.
