The National Extension Climate Initiative (NECI)
serves to link climate change-related education and
research across Extension program areas and associations.

Read NECI’s Action Items for Elevating, Amplifying, and Accelerating Extension Climate Change Actions. Collaboratively developed by attendees at the 2021 NECI Action Forum “CLIMATE CHANGE IN EXTENSION: Elevating and Amplifying Action” which brought together Extension faculty, staff­, federal representatives, administrators, interested partners and constituents to address the question: What can/should the Cooperative Extension System do to advance climate change programming?

NECI offers a number of opportunities for you to get involved today!
