Champions of Coastal Resilience is a climate science education program with a solution-oriented approach. 

We combine place-based science with real-world problem solving and innovative use of technology to care for coastal communities in Hawaiʻi and beyond.

We welcome everyone to join us!

An Overview

In            , learners investigate their watershed using a STEM approach to learning. They study their coastlines, using interactive digital maps and online curriculum resources that guide them through a place-based study of climate science. 

Learners virtually explore coastal wetlands, dunes, and communities seeking to discover how they will be impacted by sea level rise.  Virtual Field Study Videos of coastal sites allow participants to safely observe and learn about the areas. Participants develop awareness of stewardship and Citizen Science opportunities available to them and their 'ohana.  As Covid subsides, students and teachers increasingly engage in field based learning and stewardship.

An emphasis on Taking Action includes youth producing short movies called CCR Stories about their coastlines.  CCR Film Festivals celebrate the new Champions of Coastal Resilience.
