The Alliance for Climate Education educates young people on the science of climate change and empowers them to take action. The alliance plans to educate hundreds of thousands of young people on the science, impacts, and solutions of climate change; engage 500,000 Youth Action Network members in civic and climate advocacy; launch a new distributed organizing model to support youth leadership in the climate movement; and shift the youth narrative on climate change. Due to COVID-19, they expanded their digital climate education program and reached 403,000 youth across the nation. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
Action for the Climate Emergency (ACE) works at the nexus of young people, strategic digital communications, climate advocacy, and nonpartisan civic engagement in the U.S. ACE believes that educating young people about climate change is a first step toward building a base of informed leaders prepared to take civic and climate action to scale, including in rural communities where much of the clean energy deployment will happen. ACE will focus its work over the next two years on growing its influencer network to communicate the benefits of clean energy and to counter disinformation. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
