Why?

55% of teachers report never even mentioning climate change in their classrooms and when climate change is discussed it is often reduced to personal sustainability and polar bears. Spring Forward works to ensure all students understand the basic science, history, and far-reaching consequences of climate change while empowering them to make a difference. There is no climate action without education.
