' Climate Change Where I Live
Climate Change Where I Live (CCWIL) is a unique approach to teaching and learning about climate change that takes this global and often daunting issue down to the local level, facilitating student inquiry into the impacts of climate change where they live and the mitigation and adaptation measures required. Students access primary resource materials on climate change and team up with experts to examine climate change in their community, watershed or region or through a sectoral lens of agriculture or recreation. Focusing on the local enables students to engage with others in solutions, to take action. CCWIL is inquiry-based learning in Science and Geography.
