Alongside Climate Kids, students explored the causes, effects, and impacts of climate change on a global and local scale. Students engaged in a hands-on games to learn ways they can help protect the earth and San Diego ecosystems. To conclude, each attendee added their hand print to the Climate Kids Commitments board to signify their pledge to do at least one thing to help offset the impacts of our changing climate.
