About Climate Health Education Project (CHEP)
CHEP is a creation of the New Haven Leon Sister City Project and educators from High School in the Community.
We make integrating climate health and change education into the classroom our mission.
All greater New Haven area high schools are invited to use this site to lead lessons and activities geared towards climate change awareness, reducing
greenhouse gas emissions, creating healthier families and communities, and improving energy independence. Efforts throughout the year push towards culminating events and projects during Climate Health and Energy Week each April.
We provide a vast list of program and activity options/ educational resources which individual teachers, departments, grade levels, entire schools, and school districts can all use to match their specific needs.
Students are also invited to participate by checking out the resources we provide for clubs and youth organizations in our resources drop-down!
If you, whether you are a student or teacher, have any great ideas for new resources or plans to get students motivated to act on climate change, don't hesitate to share them with us! Email us
