The Climate Science Alliance is honored and excited to receive a 2021 Environmental Champions Grant from San Diego Gas and Electric to support the development of the new Climate Kids Book Club!


This generous grant will support the Alliance’s Climate Kids Program and the new Climate Kids Book Club. One of the gaps realized during the pandemic is the dampened ability to get hands-on climate science resources to students - specifically those in rural communities where the digital divide presents a significant barrier. The Climate Kids Book Club builds on our previous efforts to bridge this gap (such as our Traveling Trunks and Climate Kids Connects) by providing literary resources directly to youth to better understand climate impacts and solutions.

The Book Club, enhanced by several multi-generational engagement sessions, will support youth in exploring climate change impacts unique to their communities and provide the tools necessary to make educated decisions about how to protect our planet now and in the future. We are excited to collaborate with local educators and partners in sharing these tools to make climate science more accessible in historically underrepresented communities that are often disproportionately affected by climate change.


The Climate Science Alliance is extremely grateful for San Diego Gas and Electric’s ongoing support of our programs and their dedication to environmental education in our community!

About Climate Kids: Climate Kids is a series of community-level collaborative projects that provide youth education on climate change through science activities, storytelling, and art. Each Climate Kids project brings together local artists, scientists, educators, and storytellers to engage students of all socioeconomic levels and inspire them to become environmental stewards. Through partnerships with climate scientists and qualified educators, Climate Kids encourages curiosity about the natural world while providing youth the tools necessary to make educated decisions about how to protect our planet in the future.
