The education team is creating resources and programs to educate high school students and teachers as well as university students about the relevance of forests, forest management, and climate impacts. The PINEMAP education program also engages university students in collaborative, interdisciplinary research aimed at solving complex societal problems.

The education team is developing educational resources and training programs to

    • convey the value and relevance of southern forests and climate change impacts;
    • engage undergraduate interns in research and teaching activities;
    • prepare graduate students to address climate change mitigation and adaptation issues and engage in interdisciplinary research; and
    • contribute to a national educational network in the development and delivery of an inquiry-based high school module that introduces climate change and features select PINEMAP research findings.
