SROCC Summary for teachers


This Summary for teachers is inspired by the IPCC's Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate.

This resource is a teacher-friendly version of the Summary for Policymakers of the IPCC report. Useful infographics and ideas for short class activities are provided, as well a glossary and a list of educational resources.

For a complete and turn-key lesson plan on this topic, see the teacher's guide book "The climate in our hands - Ocean and Cryosphere".
