CoHemis has started a new project sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in collaboration with University of South Florida, Hillsborough County Public Schools, and The Florida Aquarium to improve the education of climate change in Florida and the Caribbean. This effort called Coastal Area Climate Change Education (CACCE) Partnership is also locally supported by the Sea Grant Program. Our group has been working since September 2010 and this forum represented the first official activity of the project in Puerto Rico. This forum analyzed the challenges and opportunities of education and research in climate change. Also, we explained the objectives of the CACCE project to the puertorrican community. This was the beginning of many other initiatives in this topic that we will carry out during the next two years in this first phase. Attendance was free. We had simultaneous translation English-Spanish. And we offered certificates of continuous education.
