Hello and welcome back to the Community Agriculture Project. We have made it to episode 7! In this episode, the 2023 CAP interns Ethan Liu and Iradatu Sulayman join us to interview Elissa Teles Muñoz, a Coordinator at the Climate Resilience & Education Task Force (CRETF). CRETF is dedicated to increasing access to interdisciplinary climate education and professional learning opportunities in New York's K-12 schools. In this episode, we cover the importance of a strong climate education, current climate education policies in the United States, and what a comprehensive and accessible climate education entails for youth. We discuss the shared experience of being underwhelmed by our K-12 climate education and lay out frameworks for moving forward.
