San Diego Public Library is presenting a series of sustainability programs for all ages that aim to bring awareness to climate change. Through inclusive learning opportunities, the library aims to provide meaningful spaces and resources for our communities to become more climate resilient.
San Diego Public Library is proud to partner with the City of San Diego Sustainability and Mobility department for a series of interactive workshops that center around the City's landmark 2022 Climate Action Plan. Presentation topics will cover clean energy, mobility, community resiliency and more. Participants that attend all five workshop topics will earn a certificate and continuing education credit through UC San Diego Extended Studies.
