Join the 2024 Maryland Climate Teach-In!

​​What is the Maryland Climate Teach-in?

The Maryland Climate Teach-In is an annual week of events focused on climate change education and solutions. It brings together educators, students, and community members to discuss this critical issue and empower people to act to mitigate the causes of climate change. 

The Teach-In was introduced in 2023 by the Maryland Commission on Climate Change, in conjunction with Bard College's Worldwide Climate Change Teach-In. Based on strong interest and success in its first year, the Commission's Education Working Group is now spearheading the 2024 Teach-In and hopes to make it an annual event. The Commission formally recommended that the General Assembly declare the first week of April "Climate Education Week" in Maryland in perpetuity.
