Dear Friends,

On September 15, Ten Strands, with the University of California and California State University systems, held an important (re)launch event of Environmental and Climate Change Literacy Projects (ECCLPs).
A collaborative effort, it included students, educational leaders, Indigenous voices and communities engaged in discussions of climate action, acknowledging the urgency of the moment and working together on potential solutions. We are excited to share the details of this special gathering as we continue the work of creating a path forward to positive change. Read the full article here

Outdoor Learning Spotlight: Groundswell Coastal Ecology
