Climate Change and Environmental Justice Program (CCEJP): A collaboration between Ten Strands, the San Mateo County Office of Education, the California Department of Education, and community- and student-centered organizations  who have come together to create K–12 open education resources focused on climate change and environmental justice.


As part of our work on CCEJP, we supported Senator Ben Allen’s budget request for the state to allocate an additional $10 million to provide sufficient professional learning support for teachers, and build upon and leverage the initial investment in curricular resource development. Through this campaign, we built a broad coalition of 250 supporters, positioning us for a successful campaign next year.

Read our responses to the California State Budget process this year:



individuals, education entities, and organizations submitted letters of support and made their voices heard on social media and by emailing budget leaders.


Our CCEJP writing teams have each published their story on how they hope to empower young people to understand climate change and environmental justice, leading to action in their communities. Check them out here.
