Pacific islands Climate Education Partnership

Empowering students and communities to address the urgency of climate change


PCEP is a collaborative network of Pacific island communities and friends responding to the impacts of climate change in the US-affiliated Pacific islands. The goal is to empower the region’s students and citizens through education that exemplifies both modern science and indigenous environmental knowledge, addresses the urgency of climate change impacts, and honors indigenous cultures. Students and citizens within the region will have the knowledge and skills to advance understanding of climate change, mitigate the extent of climate change, and adapt to its impacts.

As a partnership, PCEP is working together toward a vision of climate education that exemplifies modern science and local ecological knowledge, while addressing the urgency of climate impacts in the Pacific region. Our strategic plan incorporates a range of interconnected goals, grouped into four priority areas:

  • Climate Education Framework
  • Local Ecological Knowledge
  • Learning & Teaching
  • Community-School Partnerships

We serve the U.S.-affiliated Pacific islands, including Hawaiʻi, American Sāmoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia (Yap, Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei), and the Republic of Palau.
