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.
All 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.
A varied list of program and activity options are provided which may be used by individual teachers, departments, grade levels, entire schools, or school district that could match specific needs and realities of different schools.
Schools are also encouraged to come up with a list of their own activities, as they know their school environment best. Other non-school youth organizations are also invited to participate.
Please send us your great ideas on how to get students motivated to act on climate change. Email us here.
