The Climate Innovation Challenge (CIC) cultivates student leaders who can think innovatively and communicate effectively about adapting to our changing climate. CIC is a free international STEAM program for grades 3-12 that guides students through the creation of climate change solutions while developing storytelling and video production skills. The program was developed by CAVU to challenge students to create unique ideas on adapting to increasing climate impacts like floods, fires, drought, rising temperatures, and sea-level rise. We encourage students to “think globally and adapt locally,” creating solutions to implement themselves in their communities. Learn more at!
