UC Climate Stewards seeks to foster a committed corps of volunteers ready to effectively engage in transformative local solutions to promote community and ecosystem resilience in a changing climate. The UC Climate Stewards course will introduce you to social-emotional learning and trauma-aware practices, climate change communication, climate science, and community resilience planning. The course will combine communication, engagement, and science curriculum with guest lectures, field trips, and project-based learning to immerse you in the dynamics of your local community.
The course will focus on work being done on the Central Coast to address and alleviate climate impacts, and provide resources and opportunities for becoming part of the movement.

This UC Climate Stewards course will guide participants toward making greater community connections, understanding the psychology and science behind climate change and how to effectively communicate the climate crisis.
