Ecological Economics & Climate Policy (Grades 9-12)
The SEI Ecological Economics and Climate Policy introduces students to key concepts in economics, including externalities and the tragedy of the commons, in order to better understand how economics is related to climate change. They research and discuss current climate-related policies through the lens of economics, and debate about each policy’s pros and cons. They conclude by learning about climate-related policies in California and at the federal level, and applying their knowledge to create a personal political action plan.
