BUILDING RESILIENT SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES

The aim of the RiSC program and curriculum is to educate youth in NYC schools about climate science, climate impacts, climate justice, and the natural and built solutions that increase climate resiliency. RiSC engages students in knowledge-sharing and provides access to hands-on projects - like tree planting and dune restoration - that mitigate the impacts of extreme weather. The program also creates opportunities for meaningful interactions with community members, resilience practitioners and decision makers in NYC.​
