With respect to climate change, climate justice, carbon neutrality/greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and sustainability education, we expect that by Fall 2017, CSU and UC network participants:
• Will have a shared understanding of where their goals intersect across institutions.
• Will have begun to create the mechanisms, systems, and relationships needed to leverage each other’s resources, knowledge, and networks to achieve those shared goals (i.e., the beginnings of an open access network).
• Will have assessed what elements of their shared goals may benefit from coordinated state-level educational policy advocacy or resource allocation requests.
• Will feel more supported in developing or furthering their own education initiatives in the local context of their own campuses’ existing sustainability educational and operational strategies.
• Will have developed a robust statement of what culturally contextualized, responsive and sustaining, actionable and transformative climate and sustainability education means for California’s diverse student populations.
With respect to California educators’ engagement across and beyond our educational institutions for transformative climate action, by Fall 2017, CSU and UC network participants:
• Will have increased institutional visibility in Sacramento on these issues.
• Will have laid the foundations for a P-20 project, initiative, or set of resources for California teachers.
• Will have gained or expanded individual and collective public engagement skills.
