Climate Education Team

Education for Climate Solutions & Justice

Vision 2030 is a team of students, teachers, volunteers and nonprofit and governmental organizations who support a local approach to educate middle and high school students about Portland’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 50 percent from 1990 levels by 2030.
Our team offers the Keystone Lesson on Climate Justice & Solutions and we promote related lessons and projects led by students, teachers, and partners. We also partner with schools to organize fairs and events for students to learn about different climate solutions and job opportunities.

Thanks to these organizations for supporting our team:

Bonneville Environmental Foundation, City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Climate Reality, Community Energy Project, Eco-School Network, Energy Trust of Oregon, Forth, Oregon Green Schools, Prosper Portland, and Solar Oregon!
