Goals — Adapt

Needs and opportunities for schools to adapt and build resilience for disruptions related to climate change.

Extreme weather has already impacted schools across the country. Climate change, exposure to pollutants, and food insecurity are negatively impacting children’s health. And school closures related to COVID-19 have exposed weaknesses in the resilience of school systems, which will likely be only exacerbated by climate impacts. We will consider needs and opportunities for schools to adapt and build resilience in preparation for disruptions and negative impacts related to climate change.
