Together we can support
our students and make
Portland a leader in
teaching climate literacy.

Portland Public Schools will sponsor activities that bring together teachers, students, and members of the community who are working for a future free of fossil fuels and for just solutions to the climate crisis, to share knowledge, resources, curriculum, and opportunities for students to become active in responding positively to the climate crisis, including learning job skills that will be needed in the transition away from fossil fuels
