Our youth will inherit the consequences of our actions. By helping them understand the science, impacts, and solutions, they are better prepared to deal with the climate crisis and advocate for mitigation and adaptation policies at a local and state level. Incorporating climate literacy into schools benefits teachers and students alike while building community resilience (scroll down to learn more).
Supports youth climate literacy through a variety of school initiatives. As an official partner of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools STEAM program, we provide our base-line climate training to students in middle and high schools from science classes to coding and art programs.
Middle and high schools within Florida.
The CLEO Institute provides a professional development workshop for teachers that helps them discover innovative ways to include climate change education in their curriculum. This training allows educators to create more robust lesson plans. We also publish a quarterly newsletter that offers teachers additional resources, materials, and ideas to use in their classrooms.
Teachers from grades K-12
In 2020 we trained over 250 teachers across Florida. We also had teachers participate in our teacher workshops from all over the world. Cleo is a proud partner of the Miami-Dade County public school system, the 4th largest school district in the united states, incorporating climate across the curriculum to their steam schools. Each year during earth week, we also host three online climate trainings for teachers & students to amplify climate literacy in the classrooms!
Founded by Nicole Gazo, a former student of Miami Palmetto Senior High School, CLIP (Climate Leadership Information Program) is an afterschool program that helps students become certified CLEO Climate Speakers. Students then provide peer-to-peer lectures inside their school, teaching their classmates about the climate crisis. They also execute a school-wide public service campaign about the climate issues they care about and participate in additional opportunities and events.
