Students from the Climate Change elective, led by science teacher Panayiota Theodosopoulos, compiled a blog to share their findings and inspirations. Students explore how Covid and climate change are connected, communications strategies to inspire activism and awareness, and policy ideas that could lead to meaningful changes in fighting climate change.
