2024 Climate Ambassadors cohort to begin this month

The fourth cohort of the Cape Cod Commission’s Climate Ambassador Program will begin on January 31, 2024. Sixteen students representing six Cape Cod school districts have been selected to participate in this year's program. The participants have identified interests in all facets of climate change including education, policy and politics, local issues, and how to use art to convey climate-related concepts.

The Climate Ambassador Program is an initiative to educate, engage, and empower young people on Cape Cod to work together to combat climate change. More than 40 students have participated in the program since it began in 2021.

Students will meet in seven sessions from late January through May to learn about and discuss global, regional, and local climate causes and impacts, carbon reduction strategies, resiliency planning, and equity considerations. They will learn from climate experts and advocates, building a baseline for informed engagement and advocacy.
The first meeting will include remarks from Cape and Islands State Senator Julian Cyr and Cape Cod Commission Executive Director Kristy Senatori, as well as a climate science presentation by NOAA Regional Climate Services Director for the Northeast Region Ellen Mecray.
