The YESS (Youth Exploring Sea Level Rise Science) project empowers young people to engage directly in climate change solutions in their own communities. Through an experiential education program that incorporates cutting-edge classroom curricula with hands-on science, high school students explore why sea level rise is happening and how their lives will be impacted. They collect their own data; create digital storytelling products; and contribute meaningfully to local science and policy decisions. YESS allows those who will be most impacted by climate change – young people – to have a voice on the issue and to spark a broader conversation about risk and resiliency.
