Stay tuned for our upcoming Climate Masters opportunities, tentatively scheduled to begin early February, 2022.
Climate Masters was developed at the University of Oregon Climate Leadership Initiative to provide approximately 30 hours of programming over a 10-week time frame. The curriculum focuses primarily on climate change and the locally relevant interrelated connections between water, soil, food production, consumption/waste, forest management, transportation, energy and the way we live our lives. Weekly, expert guest speakers will provide in-depth presentations in each of the topic areas. Participants will also be taken on a field trip into the Upper Santa Fe Watershed to witness first-hand the efforts already underway to protect our forest and water supply.
Once the course is completed, students are required to engage in 30 hours of climate-related community service to receive the title of “Climate Master.”
