What is a Cooler Community Fair (CCF)?

Cooler Communities connects classroom learning to climate solutions by:

Supporting teachers by providing free curriculum, resources, and professional development to integrate climate solutions into their required curriculum

 

Inspiring students to become change agents at home and in their communities

 

Building bridges between schools, towns, volunteers, service providers, and parents to make our communities climate smarter 

 

Providing grants for school districts in Massachusetts to boost their climate education and host Cooler Communities fairs

 

At Cooler Communities’ events, students’ work on climate change, energy and conservation becomes the centerpiece of a fun and informative, virtual or in-person community event that leads to measurable results and benefits for the students, their communities and the earth.
