About the Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Education Collaborative


The Mid-Atlantic is bustling with education for climate action - from high quality teacher professional development to intergenerational community programs and everything in between. In 2020, a handful of partners came together to lift up this important work through our inaugural Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Education Conference (MACCE-Conference). The energy continued with another three-day virtual conference in 2021, attended by more than 250 educators from across the region.


In the summer of 2022 we offered a scaled-back version of our conference (a one-day convening) while also hosting a two-day Forum to learn and share about the state of education for climate action and more intentionally build a community of diverse partners to uplift work under the MACCE-Conference umbrella. 


What emerged from the Forum are a series of action teams that are convening on a regular basis to propel conversations and work forward in these specific spaces. This model creates the space for shared-power and decision making for future conferences and initiatives led under the MACCE-Collaborative name.


We welcome you to become a part of the collaborative! Check out the Collaborative Action Teams from the top menu to learn more and reach out to the group "champion" to join the work.
