A youth-focused, inclusive community of student activists passionate about the fight for a safe, just, and livable climate!
The time commitment is flexible! You can register and attend as many workshops/events as you would like! Students who participate in programming regularly will have the opportunity to serve as peer leaders in future Climate Museum programs. This summer the Museum is offering a series of free workshops for new and current CALP members.
The Summer Workshop Series Includes:

Skill building: collaboration, creativity, community-building, leadership, communications
- Empowering Climate Action Through Art Online on Wednesday July 13, 3:30 - 5:30 pm EST
