Climate Solutions 101: Making It All Happen

Ask a Question

  • This video discusses how to start enacting the many solutions to climate change, including the cost savings and social benefits that these solutions provide.
  • It discusses the implementation required and identifies solutions that span from individual actions to large-scale changes in regulations, agriculture, investments, transportation, and government expenditures.
Teaching Tips


  • This is a positive video that encourages people to take action and support climate solutions.
  • The video can be divided up into shorter sections, if needed.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Science
    • ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
      • MS-ESS3-4. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
    • ETS1: Engineering Design
      • MS-ETS1-2. Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
      • HS-ETS1-3. Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and trade-offs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
  • Social Studies
    • Economics
      • SS.Econ1.a.m Predict the opportunity costs of various decisions and explain why the opportunity cost might differ from person to person or in different situations. Assess how limited resources (e.g., money, land, natural resources, workers, time) impact the choices of individuals, households, communities, businesses, and countries.
