Climate Literacy

with stories  in every classroom at all grade levels across all subject areas

Earth is in a state of climate emergency. To turn this around, we need to become a climate literate society. Schools are ground zero for this effort.

Climate Lit is a resource hub for building young people’s climate literacy with literature, film, and stories in other media. Our mission is to promote universal climate literacy and climate literacy education as a means to transition to an ecological civilization.
