In coordination with faculty and education partners, the Environmental Resilience Institute is providing grade-appropriate resources, experts, and immersive, hands-on workshops to Indiana educators focused on environmental science and climate change.

Educating for Environmental Change

Teachers today must contend with multiple barriers to effectively teach their students about climate change and its causes, including misinformation and a lack of grade-appropriate resources. Educating for Environmental Change (EfEC) addresses these challenges by providing a professional development program for K-12 educators to effectively teach the science and policy of environmental change. Workshop organizers are leveraging EfEC to develop a model that effectively trains educators and builds a sustainable teaching network.
