Climate Commitments: School Board Resolution Toolkit

|
Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This toolkit provides action steps for students to present and pass a climate resolution through their school district's school board.
  • The toolkit includes a template that will guide students as they write their resolution. 
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The toolkit gives step-by-step directions for students to take action in their community.
  • Climate Generation will provide individual support to help students build a climate strategy.
  • The school board resolution template is a strong start for students.

Additional Prerequisites

  • To download the toolkit, teachers need to enter an email and type in a code sent to the email address. 
  • The links to Youth Environmental Activists and iMatter on page 4 do not work.

Differentiation

  • This project could be a school-wide initiative. Older students could build leadership skills by visiting younger students' classrooms to talk about the project and explain the importance of climate education and civic engagement.
  • Students in private or charter schools can research who they should appeal to in order to advocate for climate education in their own institutions.
Scientist Notes
This toolkit has no contradiction and it is recommended for climate actions and education.
