The National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) in the United States is spearheading climate change education initiatives. These links to resources are from Andy Alm, CEC Specialty Group Leader for Knowledge Management.

The National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) is spearheading climate change education initiatives which equip professors of various disciplines to teach climate change science and solutions. Using the best available technology, these online teaching resources will be:

  1. a comprehensive collection of scientifically accurate, publicly available information on climate change science and solutions;
  2. combined into "modules" which can be integrated into course curriculum from a diversity of university departments and disciplines; and
  3. a forum for building a community of authors, editors, and networkers for the advancement of next-generation climate change education.
