Climate Parents of Prince George’s County
Advocating for Climate Friendly Schools in Prince George’s County
We represent the Sierra Club’s Climate Parents in Prince George’s County. Sierra Club’s Climate Parents is a diverse national movement of parents and families mobilizing for bold clean energy and climate solutions. Climate Parents is a campaign to reduce climate change–causing pollution in our schools, increase the climate resilience of our school infrastructure and capacity, and benefit the children, educators, and staff who will be impacted by a changing climate. We are leading that charge in Prince George’s County.
If achieved these goals will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, make school environments healthier, and in many cases, save money in the long term.
During our campaign we have successfully called for Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) to adopt climate reduction goals and participated on’a Focus Workgroup created by the PGCPS Board of Education that wrote a Climate Change Action Plan that was later adopted by the Board. Now we are focused on advocating for the successful implementation of the plan both through efforts with PGCPS, Prince George’s County government, and the State of Maryland.
