Climate Change Education Campaign

Climate Change Education Campaign

 

In the 2013-2014 school year, HRAP students continued to build on their climate change work focusing on the issue of climate change education.  HRAP students wrote a petition mandating climate education for all New York City students.  They collected over 3,000 written and online signatures.  This work led up to a rally at New York City Hall in June 2014, which was attended by partners Alliance for Climate Education and New York City Council Members Costa Constantinides and Donovan Richards, among many other supporters.

 

Through a colloborative process with GK Leaders, Council Member Constantinides introduced into New York City Council chambers Resolution 0375-2014 calling for climate change education in all New York City school.
