NYC Climate Education Campaign

In the 2013-2014 school year, GK HRAP students continued to build on their previous climate change work by focusing on the issue of climate change education.  HRAP students wrote a petition mandating climate education for all New York City public school students and held a rally at City Hall in June 2014, which was attended by partners New York City Council Members Costa Constantinides and Donovan Richards, among many other supporters.

 

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