Early Childhood Education

On December 4, 2017, the Sebastopol Union School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved a resolution that recognizes that children of today will bear the impacts of climate change and that schools have the responsibility to equip them with opportunities to respond by implementing initiatives like this resolution. This resolution also resolves to establish a Climate Change Committee who is charged with developing recommendations for taking action on climate change in the school district, such as creating curricular and educational opportunities, facilities and operational priorities and projects; targets for reducing district greenhouse gas emissions; and, engagement with local, state, and federal jurisdictions.


This resolution was uplifted by a group of students, parents, and teachers at Sebastopol schools who were involved with a group called Schools for Climate Action. The Climate Change Committee was formed in January 2017 and has focused on topics such as energy, water conservation, waste diversion, landscaping, and opportunities for education and student engagement.
