The HighWaterLine ACTION GUIDE Completed!

July 15, 2013

Grantee News From HighWaterLine:

The HighWaterLine ACTION GUIDE was developed to accommodate a wide range of participants including 

nonprofit 

organizations, 

school 

groups, 

and 

individuals. 

It 

can 

easily 

be 

a 

weekend 

 workshop, an entire semester, or annual project of research, production and presentation. The project is considered a reproducible tool for anyone interested to take action addressing climate change.

Although the range of impacts due to climate change are vast and include extreme weather, drought, 

 food 

 shortages 

 and 

 more, 

 the 

 guide 

 specifically 

 focuses 

 on 

 educating 

 and 

 activating 

 communities to reduce C02 emissions, and to advocate for adaptation, mitigation and resiliency. 

 Participants 

 will 

 begin 

 to 

 understand 

 conceptually 

 through 

 active 

 visualization 

 how 

 accelerated global warming will impact the people and the environment in their community.

Activities found in the guide have been broken into STAGES, which can be executed individually or 

all 

together, 

and 

at 

the 

depth 

that 

makes 

sense 

with 

the 

learning 

goals 

of 

an 

organization 

 or institution. Included in each stage are ACTION STEPS to create your own placed based HighWaterLine. At the end of the guide are RESOURCES and SUPPLEMENTAL ACTIVITIES sections that can be aligned with Common Core Standards.
