Presidio Graduate School’s Climate Education for All program has a mission of providing all teachers with the climate literacy skills and tools they need to educate the next generation on climate change science, causes, and solutions. Our current offerings include three free online, facilitated teacher professional development courses: Teaching Climate Change Essentials, Teaching Extreme Weather, and Teaching Climate Justice.
