The Foresight Project's educational programs on climate change, clean technology and sustainable energy are both innovative and unique in being able to reach all high school students, regardless of their previous interest.  Finding a way for students and teachers to incorporate learning within the constraints of their existing curricula, on a real-time basis, is a critically important task if we are to overcome the inertia that dominates our country on finding and implementing solutions to these critical iissues.

Please help us in this task!


Where Does the Money Go?  Even a "Bare-bones" grass roots program needs money in order to continue.  And, as we have learned from so many examples, even the smallest contributions add up to big possibilities.
