Mr. Matt Lappe

Profile:

Matt has been integral in growing ACE to a national non-profit that has reached over 1.7 million students in five years. Matt was one of ACE’s first employees, brought on in 2008 to develop the science credibility of ACE’s programming. Most recently, he served as ACE’s Director of Education, developing all of ACE’s multimedia education resources, overseeing the science training of staff, and convening ACE’s Science Advisory Board, consisting of some of the top experts in the climate field. He also headed evaluation efforts to measure ACE’s impact and managed the ACE Teacher Engagement program to help bring the best climate science into the classroom. After receiving BS and MS degrees from Stanford University’s Earth Systems program, he studied paleoclimate and environmental hydrology throughout Patagonia, Vietnam, and Cambodia. Upon his return to California, he taught at a small charter high school, heading their science and social studies departments. Before joining ACE, Matt worked as a Policy Analyst for the Tomales Bay Institute where he worked on federal climate policy. He is a presenter for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project, and is currently completing an Executive MBA program at the University of Colorado, Boulder. In collaboration with Stanford, Yale, and George Mason Universities, Matt’s most recent paper is in review by the journal Climatic Change.

None

Program Description:

Through our multimedia assembly, ACE remains on the cutting edge of climate science communication and engagement. We cut through the complexity and controversy to present climate science in a way that is immediately relevant to students’ lives. We accomplish this by presenting the most current, peer-reviewed science through a unique blend of video, custom animation, music, storytelling, and interactive text messaging.

Program Long-Term Success:

Our goal by 2020 is to educate, inspire and activate 12 million teens and young adults as part of a multi-generational force for carbon reduction and healthy communities.

Program Short-Term Success:

After viewing the ACE Assembly, students are inspired to take action in their schools and communities.

Program Success Monitored by:

ACE uses Salesforce, a robust database that follows the efficiency and output of our programs nationally and regionally.

Program Success Examples:

Shreya Indukuri and Daniela Lapidous were freshmen at the Harker School in San Jose, CA, when they attended their first ACE Assembly. The ACE Assembly inspired them to think critically about their school’s energy footprint and how they could make a difference. They kickstarted an ACE Action Team, applied for an ACE grant and got to work on school building energy efficiency retrofits. To date, they have saved their school thousands of dollars and founded their own nonprofit, SmartPowerEd, to help other schools save energy and money. This led to an invitation to the White House to meet with the Chief Technology Officer to discuss ways their program could be replicated across the country.

Program Description:

ACE’s innovative Youth Leadership and Alliance Building (YLAB) program model is designed to increase youth participation in climate solutions at the community level after they're inspired by the Assembly. YLAB has been developed on the core principle that teens have a fundamental right to know about and participate in solutions to climate change. As part of YLAB, Community Action Teams cultivate multigenerational impact by selecting outstanding youth leaders to work in partnership with adult climate allies. The Community Action Teams turn the knowledge, skills and climate science learned during the ACE Assembly into action by providing youth with the opportunity to assess the climate impacts and solutions in their communities and carry out impact projects based on the needs and opportunities of their specific region. Community Action Teams are made up primarily of ACE youth working in partnership with local energy or climate-focused groups on a specific initiative, project or solution to directly address the causes and/or impacts of climate change. Over the coming year, ACE will continue to seek and formalize partnerships with active climate initiatives and organizations to coordinate channels of long-term participation for teen-based networks.
