ENVIRONMENTAL AND CLIMATE CHANGE LITERACY SUMMIT

December 11 - 12, 2019 | UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center | Los Angeles, CA


Now more than ever, climate change is an urgent issue that must be addressed. Education must be part of the solution. With that in mind, the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems are partnering with key stakeholders to support the urgent need to advance PK–12 environmental and climate change literacy by focusing on the preparation of current and future teachers to respond to these urgent issues.


The Environmental and Climate Change Literacy Project and Summit (ECCLPS, pronounced "eclipse") Steering Committee is a collaborative effort helping to make this work possible with the goal to:

Educate 500,000 graduating high school students per year in California to become literate in environmental and climate change issues and solutions.
