The Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts is committed to public outreach to enhance our understanding of climate change and develop adaptation strategies to build our state’s resilience.

Climate Wisconsin is an educational multimedia collection from PBS Wisconsin Education featuring stories about how climate change has impacted and will continue to impact life in the state.

PBS Wisconsin Education collaborated with Wisconsin educators and climate experts to update the information in the collection, create teaching guides for each climate story to identify actions that may impact changes to our climate, and provide additional materials from respected Wisconsin organizations.
