Sacramento City Unified School District held its first annual Youth Climate Summit. The October 2019 Summit for teachers and students centered around how to develop a climate curriculum. One big meme coming out of the summit was that climate should be taught not just in science class, but in all applicable areas like social studies, English, and math.
