Education and Communication for Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness 

Research indicates that science teachers as well as the general public 
have misconceptions and significant gaps in their understanding of the 
basics of the climate system, which may lead to an incorrect understanding 
of climate change. Discussion of 
climate change leads naturally into solutions, including the roles of 
energy systems. What are the current gaps in science education standards 
and needs for professional development programs? How important is climate 
literacy and energy awareness for a 21st Century workforce? How may the 
basics of climate science be best fostered for a wide variety of learners? 
How may energy awareness be incorporated into school curriculum? 
Submissions are invited that provide models and best practices for climate 
science and climate change education and for developing energy awareness 
related to climate science.
