Commitment to Action

Activating a Diverse Alliance of Youth Climate Leaders

Commitment by

Alliance for Climate Education

In 2012, the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) committed to equip youth leaders with the knowledge and skills to generate systemic, climate-positive behavior change across the United States. ACE's structured engagement pathway, from education to leadership experience, will activate and empower high school students to influence their peers and become climate change leaders for their communities and generation. ACE will provide in-school assemblies, reaching over one million students, as well as catalyze youth-driven and teacher-sponsored action initiatives. ACE will train approximately 1,000 youth leaders each year and engage more than 1,000 teachers per year in the ACE network. During the 2013-2014 school year, ACE will implement a student-run Energy Conservation Campaign in 23 U.S. states. Leveraging national impact metrics, ACE will show how such initiatives help save schools money and meet new education standards around climate science.
