NOAA’s Climate Stewards Education Project: What It Is and How You Can Join
Join a webinar on December 8, 2014 at 7:30 PM Eastern to:
· learn more about climate science,

· learn how to join other educators who are supporting climate resilience
NOAA’s Climate Steward Education Project (CSEP) provides formal and informal educators with sustained professional development, collaborative tools, and support to build a climate-literate public that is actively engaged in climate stewardship. CSEP also provides support for educators to execute climate stewardship (mitigation or adaptation) projects to increase understanding of climate science, and practical actions to reduce the impact of climate change. The project is part of NOAA’s portfolio of activities to strengthen ocean, climate, and atmospheric science education. There are two levels of involvement.
> Level I. If you are only interested professional development opportunities in climate science and have no interest in doing a stewardship project.
> Level II. If you are interested in professional development opportunities and want to take advantage of mini-grant funding up to $2,000 to develop and implement a climate stewardship project, travel stipends/reimbursements to attend and present at regional workshops &/or national conferences, special professional development opportunities, and CSEP contests with monetary and educational resource prizes.
