About PCEP

Pacific islands Climate Education Partnership (PCEP) is a collaborative network of Pacific island communities and friends responding to the impacts of climate change in the US-affiliated Pacific islands: American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia (Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Yap), Guam, Hawaii, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau.

Our goal is to empower the region’s students and citizens through education that exemplifies both modern science and indigenous environmental knowledge, addresses the urgency of climate change impacts, and honors indigenous cultures. Students and citizens within the region will have the knowledge and skills to advance understanding of climate change, mitigate the extent of climate change, and adapt to its impacts.

Stay Connected with PCEP!

PCEP has several online tools to keep our partnership of educators and scientists across the Pacific region connected. Our goal is for these tools to help us learn from each other and share information about climate change and its impact in the Pacific Islands.
