The Institute for Climate Education at A-B Tech is an innovative model for community engagement and support that provides our region with meaningful information about climate-related issues.
By engaging the community through workshops and free seminars, classes, public outreach and other activities, the Institute makes the complexities of Earth system science understandable and relevant by putting the Earth’s climate into terms that everyone can relate to.
- How will a changing climate impact Western North Carolina?
- Is there a connection between a warmer planet and extreme weather events?
- Will we experience more severe flooding, longer droughts, more harsh winters?
- What about changes to what we can grow and to our water supply?
Asheville is a unique place, not only because of its location in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, but because it is home to some of the Nation’s key assets related to climate data and information including NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), the U.S. Air Force’s 14th Weather Squadron (formerly the Air Force Combat Climatology Center), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service’s Southern Research Station. That means that some of the best minds working on issues related to climate live right here.
The Institute develops opportunities to mix and mingle with these professionals one-on-one, in the classroom, or at local events.
