There are so many ways for students to get involved with climate action! Here are some of the ways we suggest

1. Join or start a student activist group (either at the local or national level)

2. Stay informed on the latest news! Here are some resources that we recommend:

3. Make changes around your school

  • Advocate for sustainable changes, both small and large scale, through taking action
    • Small changes – learn how to recycle properly in your area & print out informative posters to put up around your school next to trash and recycling bins
    • Large changes – run for student council or other leadership positions and use your position to advocate for climate education and action!
      • Advocate for climate and environmental education classes (e.g. Introduction to the Environment, AP Environmental Science)
      • Advocate and make change by acting towards climate initiatives. Here are some projects that can be done locally.
      • Advocate for research, such as a schoolwide GHG emissions analysis, a schoolwide recycling initatitive, or new guidelines to save energy on your campus

4. Make changes around your home / your personal routine

  • Adopt the 5 R’s of Sustainability as a practice – Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot (Compost)
  • Shop local
  • Shop second – hand

5. Online Actions

6. Political Actions
