Since 2013, the Bay Area Climate Literacy Impact Collaborative (BayCLIC) has built collaborations and resources around climate messaging and climate action amongst local environmental education organizations. Together, we can ensure that visitors to the Bay Area’s array of renowned educational institutions learn about the core elements of climate science, but also feel that they are motivated and empowered to take action in their own communities.
Through workshops highlighting climate science and its impact on extreme weather events, resources on the social science of climate communication and toolkits aimed at solution messaging, BayCLIC serves as a support and resource to local environmental educational organizations.
BayCLIC is led by The Marine Mammal Center and the collaborative is comprised of over 100 individuals, as well as organizations ranging from the National Park Service to Exploratorium to Lindsay Wildlife Museum. The collaborative offers a tiered system of engagement, letting members customize their participation.
General members attend regular quarterly meetings and keep up to date with BayCLIC news. Members that want to take a more active role can get involved in a leadership group, either helping to plan and implement discussion sessions and meetings, or supporting project-visioning development.
